Spotify Now Lets You Share Music Directly to Snapchat

Spotify is adding the ability to share whatever it is you’re listening to with a snap on Snapchat — long after other platforms like Instagram already got this same type of integration. So long as Snapchat is installed on the same device you’re using Spotify on, you’ll now see it appear in Spotify’s share menu.

When chosen, Snapchat will automatically create a snap that includes song info and album art for the currently playing track. This can then be sent to your individual Snapchat friends or to your story. You can share individual songs, albums, playlists, or podcasts.
