Spotify does music within Facebook

Spotify announced that the new mini music player is now available for use in 27 countries, and it allows you to listen to music or podcasts shared in posts without having to leave Facebook.

And last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the company is working with Spotify on new music features that allow users to listen to them while using social network apps.

Project Boombox allows you to listen to any music or podcast episode shared by a friend, family member, artist or content creator directly from your news feed.

Connect the music

“The first time you click to listen,” Spotify says, “a dialog appears asking for approval to connect music and social apps, and if you log into (Spotify), the music or any other sound will start.”

She added: If you are not logged in, you are asked to do so, and the audio content continues to play while you use the (Facebook) application, with the mini music player installed at the bottom of the interface above the navigation icons.

And the pause or shutdown controls on the mini music player will be just one click away at all times.

The audio feature displays the album along with the artist and title information, and the player looks very similar to what you see in (Spotify) mobile applications.

Spotify says: Premium subscribers will have full player functionality, while free users can use shuffle mode and listen to ads just like you hear when using streaming service apps.
