Facebook Messenger is launching a music integration for the very first time with Spotify. In chat threads, inside the Messenger “More” section users will now find a Spotify option. They can select a song to listen to and will be then be asked if they want to share the cover artwork. The friend they’re chatting with will be taken to Spotify to listen to it.
Messenger has also created a playlist if you would like to know what they’ve been listening to. Spotify has its own internal sharing option and can connect with email, SMS, WhatsApp and now Messenger. Spotify could definitely use a little more publicity and with Messenger, it could really be effective in fending off Apple Music.
