Facebook want you not to leave the app, even for buying or listening music. The social network giant announced via its blog post that the iOS app of Facebook will have a new way to share with public.
Facebook app for iOS now allows a new type of sharing called music stories. With this you will be able to share 30 sec. music clips to Facebook.
The service currently supports Apple Music and Spotify only but Facebook has promised that it will add support to other services soon. Also right now the new post type is not supported on Android Version of Facebook app. We can hope that it will be included soon on other platforms as well.
Instead of just listening music sample or preview on App, the service will also support buying the music from music stores or adding them to user playlists.
The previews from Apple Music and iTunes are available directly through Facebook. If you want more, click through to stream full tracks on Apple Music or add music to your library with a single click to purchase through the iTunes store.
Facebook is trying really hard to not give users a reason to leave Facebook app. The Video Sharing support, Instant Articles and now released music stories prove this.
