Last year it was announced that Spotify would be integrated with Facebook Messenger in which users will be able to search for songs on Spotify and share it with the person that they’re chatting with. Granted there are plenty of ways of sharing songs, this is one of the options afforded to Messenger users.
It was later announced that Apple Music would eventually get similar integration too, and it looks like that has happened. If you are an Apple Music user who would like to share his or her songs with their friends in Messenger, you will be able to do so. All users have to do is launch Messenger, tap the “plus” icon and add Apple Music to your conversation.
There is even an Apple Music bot where users can chat with the bot to ask it for recommendations for songs. Users will be able to ask for recommendations by sending it an emoji as well. Note that the Apple Music extension will work even for those without an Apple Music subscription, although in this case users will be limited to sharing 30-second clips versus full tracks if you were a subscriber.
Recently it was announced that Apple Music had crossed the 30 million subscriber mark, and with the integration with Facebook Messenger, we reckon it has the potential to convince more people to get on board.
