Facebook has announced today that they are launching a new feature ‘Music Stories‘. This feature’s main focus is to enable music discovery amongst friends and fans. Users can now discover new music or share their favourite songs to their profiles through the Facebook app. Music Stories allows users to share the music they are listening to from Spotify or Apple Music straight to the Facebook app by copying the link into their statuses, providing a 30-second preview of the song for all followers to enjoy. This feature is currently only available on IOS devices. Integration into other platforms will be surely soon to follow.
Music Stories is very easy to use and will allow people to share their favourite music with friends and family instantly. Essentially, it is like a normal Facebook status update, however when you copy the link from the streaming service where the track is being played and post your status, friends will be able to see a well designed streaming button they can click on to listen to the 30-second clip of the track currently being played as well as get the option to add the track to their playlist.
