Facebook Messenger Integrates With Spotify

By David Cohen Comment


Facebook Messenger is about to become a lot more musical, as the social network launched an integration with Spotify that will allow users to share songs, artists or playlists.

Facebook told VentureBeat the integration will be “available broadly soon,” and TechCrunch is reporting that all iOS and Android users who installed Thursday’s update have access.

Spotify now appears as an option when users composing messages click the “more” menu, and users who select it are taken to the Spotify app, where they can “search for something to share.” Users who receive Spotify content from their friends can simply click on the thumbnail to open Spotify on their devices and listen to the songs, artists or playlists that were shared with them.

TechCrunch pointed out that the Messenger team created its own playlist, as well.

And Gizmodo pointed out that accessing the Spotify integration via desktop only displays the Spotify icon and album art, but does not open Spotify or play any music.

Readers: Will you start sharing music from Spotify with your friends via Facebook Messenger?
