Spotify adds new music-sharing option targeting Snapchat

Spotify’s latest sharing tool which allows users share snippets of music or podcasts they are listening to on social media is proving to be a great tool for spotify. The Music streaming service is opening up this share tool to more platforms. The latest in line is the ability to share what tunes or podcasts users are listening to with their Snapchat friends. It can share songs, albums, playlists, artist profiles and podcasts right from the sharing menu on said pages, you’ll be able to post whatever’s grabbing your attention to Snapchat and Snapchat Stories if you have the latter app installed.
The feature is well integrated into Snapchat as you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen and tap to start listening to your friend’s recommendation from your Snapchat feed. The Snapchat share option will be available in the iOS and Android Spotify apps soon.
A few months ago, Instagram opened up the ability to post to Stories from other apps, including Spotify, while as of last month, you can share song snippets to Facebook Stories. Spotify isn’t the first music service to add Snapchat sharing, though — iHeartRadio introduced it alongside Facebook and Instagram Story sharing last month, claiming it was the first streaming platform to integrate with all three. Other services, including Tidal, also offer Instagram and Facebook Story sharing.
