Facebook Messenger platform push continues with Spotify integration
March 4, 2016 - Uncategorized
Facebook Messenger is hoping to help people talk about music by integrating with Spotify.
A new feature in the standalone messaging app lets users post any Spotify song, album, or playlist within a conversation thread. Users must have Spotify installed on their phones, as selecting Spotify under Facebook Messenger’s “More” tab will temporarily open the music app. From there, users select what they want to share and automatically jump back into Messenger.
The integration comes amid rumors that Facebook will soon open up Messenger to any third-party app. Unnamed sources recently told MarketingLand that Facebook will announce the feature at its F8 developers conference in April.
