Spotify Enables Music, Podcast Sharing To Snapchat
Spotify has launched an integration with Snapchat that allows users to share music and podcasts directly through Snapchat Stories. The feature is rolling out soon across iOS and Android devices starting today.
Sharing to Snapchat is the latest in a series of social media integrations including with Instagram and Facebook Stories, that Spotify has added that enable users can discover, share and explore audio with friends.
Each integration provides new opportunities to market music, but falls short of the ability to communicate with fans directly on the streaming platform.
