Spotify Releases iMessage App To Assist Sharing

Spotify now has its own iMessage app, making it easier for users to share songs with others. With a couple taps, you can send a song to a friend. You can use the feature to search for tracks while in the messaging app and then you can tap to share a preview in your chat.

The app's functionality is very similar to the Spotify for Facebook Messenger app, which came out in the spring.

Song previews include an album image, song title, and information about the artist. Recipients can tap to hear a 30-second clip or they can press the "Play on Spotify" button to open the full track if they've subscribed to the service.
