Spotify finally lets you share music on Snapchat

Long since its competition (like Instagram) got the feature, Spotify finally lets you share the music you listen to directly to Snapchat. If you have Snapchat and Spotify in the same device, Snapchat will now be an option you'll see in Spotify's share menu. The app will automatically create a snap with the song info and album art. Just like with Instagram, you can send this to individual Snapchat friends or have it posted on your story. You can share songs, albums, playlists, or podcasts. Now, if you get a Spotify share on Snapchat, you can swipe up to start listening to the song sent to you.

You can share 15-second Spotify song clips on Facebook Stories

Spotify wants to help you share your music taste on Facebook with this new feature. You can now share 15-second clips of music from Spotify on your Facebook Stories. The streaming music service is gearing this towards musicians, claiming it's a "more powerful way to connect with fans." But anyone who has a Spotify and Facebook account can use it. If your followers tap on the preview, they will be transferred to Spotify where you can listen to the rest of the track. There's a similar feature available for Instagram.

To share the song on Facebook you just need to hit "Share" when listening to the track on Spotify. When the menu shows up, select Facebook and customize it the way you want before you post. It only works for single tracks right now. The preview for albums and playlists will not have the 15-second clip.

Spotify tests new convenient Nearby Device feature

A new feature Spotify is testing out makes it easier to switch to your "favorite" nearby device. Thurrott's Mehedi Hassan reported that this new nearby device feature allows users to easily switch playback to their most-used device whenever they're nearby. If this test is available to you, then it'll ask you first if you want to set a "favorite" device within Spotify Connect. When you set it to your preferred device, the mobile app will ask you whether you want to start playback on that device whenever you are near the device.

An example Hassan gave was that he set a Harman Kardon Invoke speaker as a favorite device. Every time he comes home, Spotify detects that the Invoke is nearby. It would send him a notification asking if he wants to start playing on the Invoke. Spotify would then switch playback immediately from the notification, easing the process for him to make the switch. Theoretically, it should work with any device that supports Spotify Connect, but Hassan notes that it doesn't work with his Windows 10 PC yet. Since this seems to be a test, you may or may not get it yet. Let us know what you think if you have access to it.

Spotify tests out new personalized playlists: On Repeat & Repeat Rewind

Spotify’s personalized playlists are usually designed for music discovery. But this time it looks like the music streaming service is trying something different. Android Police discovered two new playlists that are populated by songs you frequently listen to. The two playlists are called On Repeat and Repeat Rewind. On Repeat focuses on the “songs you love right now,” while Repeat Rewind focuses on “some old favorites.” According to Android Police’s Ryne Hager, the playlist appeared on his Android app under the “Uniquely yours” section in the Home tab. It also doesn’t seem to be available to everyone yet. We haven’t seen it show up on our app either. But Spotify is known to do extensive A/B tests for everything, so that might be the case for this playlist.
