Instagram and Spotify recently launched the ability for users to share the songs and albums they’re listening to on Spotify to their Instagram Stories. When a song or album is shared, followers can tap the post to listen to the song or album on Spotify themselves. Our guide will show you how this works.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Spotify and Instagram applications on iOS.
Step 1: In the Spotify app, tap the three dots on the page of the song or album you wish to share.
Step 2: Tap “Share.” Note: You may need to swipe upward at the bottom of the screen to see the full “Share” button.
Step 3: Tap “Instagram Stories.”
Step 4: If this is the first time you’ve shared a song or album from Spotify to Instagram Stories, a window may appear asking for your permission to open the Instagram app. If this happens, tap “Open.”
From here, the song or album is added to a new Instagram Stories post for you, and you can customize the post just as you would a normal post before sharing it. This includes the ability to rotate, resize and move the album art.
