Facebook Messenger adds music, starting with Spotify song sharing (08/03/16)
First came the Transportation hub with Uber, and now Facebook Messenger is launching “its very first music integration” with Spotify.
Inside the Messenger “More” section in chat threads, all iOS and Android users will now find a Spotify option. Tap it and they’ll be shuttled into Spotify’s app where they can “Search for something to share.” Once they select a song, artist or playlist, they’ll be popped back to Messenger with the option to share the photo of the cover artwork. When a friend taps that photo, they’ll be bounced over to Spotify to listen.
