Spotify's New iMessage App Makes it Easier to Text Songs to Friends

Spotify's New iMessage App Makes it Easier to Text Songs to Friends”

Spotify has gotten into a variety of non-Spotify apps lately, from an integration with crowd-sourced traffic app, Waze to FacebookMessenger. Anyone who received an iMessage containing a Spotify song would then have to open the main Spotify app to listen.

Now they've have taken another step in the right direction, launching an iMessage-integrated app that lets users send and receive tracks to friends without having to leave iMessenger. To find the best electronic music to share with your friends, check out our Run The Trap playlist and more by following us on Spotify. TechCrunch first reported on Spotify's new iMessage app on Thursday, noting that Spotify users had previously only been able to share songs from that service with their friends on iMessage by using a share button within Spotify's main app.

If you're a Spotify user (and an iPhone user), there have probably been countless times you've shared a song with a friend through iMessage. If they're a Spotify member, they'll also see a little Spotify icon in the upper left corner of the iMessage screen.

You might be accustomed to sharing Spotify tracks while you're in the music app and sending it to someone through iMessage.

While similar in functionality to Apple Music's song-sharing iMessage keyboard, Apple Music only lets you share tracks based on your recent listening history, whereas Spotify lets you pick a song from its entire catalog without ditching your conversation.
