Facebook now has a new way for you to share that song or album you love with your friends. The social media site revealed its newest feature, “Music Stories,” today which allows users to copy links from either Spotify or Apple Music and share 30-second clips with their friends and followers using the iOS app. Content is streamed through those two services, depending on which link you shared, and doesn’t require a subscription to either service according to BuzzFeed.
The previews from Apple Music and iTunes are available directly through Facebook. If you want more, click through to stream full tracks on Apple Music or add music to your library with a single click to purchase through the iTunes store. The previews from Spotify are also available directly through Facebook. If you want more, click through to stream full tracks on Spotify or add to your library without leaving Facebook. We will expand Music Story support for additional streaming music services soon.
Watch a video explaining how the process works below.
