With Spotify, users could listen to their favorite music and podcasts anytime, anywhere. With Snapchat, users could share what they’re up to instantaneously. Soon users would be able to combine the two seamlessly and share what they’re listening to in a snap.
As part of a new integration, all Spotify users who have the Snapchat app installed will be able to share their favorite tracks, playlists, artist profiles, and podcasts right to the Snapchat camera for sharing with friends directly or posting their Story.
Tap the “share” menu (three dots on the right of the screen) while listening to any song, album, artist, or podcast.
Select “Snapchat” from the dropdown list.
Snapchat will open a new Snap with the full album art included.
Edit and send — whether to a few people or to the user’s Story!
If a friend sends a Snap with a song, playlist, artist profile, or podcast rec included, the user could start streaming with a few quick steps:
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Tap the context card with song, artist, playlist, or podcast info.
Spotify will open and play away.
With this new way of sharing, it’s quicker and easier for friends to share what they’re listening to — and for others to start listening.
Integration rolling out soon across iOS and Android devices.
