Share Spotify audio clips on Facebook Stories
Users can share 15-second audio clips directly from Spotify to Facebook Stories.
The time has come for users to be able to share the music they love directly from Spotify to Facebook’s Stories feature- a feature that is all the craze in social media. In fact, in April Facebook revealed that 500 million users used Stories daily.
“Today, we’re rolling out a more powerful way to connect with fans on Facebook Stories — with 15-second song previews,” announced Spotify.
All you have to do is open Spotify, select a song and press share. You then choose which social media platform you would like to share the music snippet to be it Instagram, Facebook news feed or Stories, Twitter and more.
Facebook users can then tap on a ‘Play on Spotify’ button which will redirect them to the streaming platform where they can listen to the full track (if they have an account, of course.)
Sharing is caring
Users, please note that the new feature only works for individual tracks, not albums or playlists. Users can post albums, playlists and artist profiles; however, viewers will only be able to click on a link, not hear a preview.
Besides being a great tool for users, the new Spotify Facebook integration is a powerful marketing tool for artists.
It has the potential to make users’ Stories more engaging while simultaneously sending traffic back to Spotify for further music discovery.
