Spotify Has A New Miniplayer That Lives Right In The Facebook App

Spotify Miniplayer

When it comes to Spotify for music listening, we all have that friend or loved one who always seems to be in-the-know regarding the hottest emerging artists or the latest releases—and who uses their social network to share their latest discoveries.

Discovery is important to Spotify. That’s why we’re improving how users share and engage with songs and podcast episodes by introducing a new miniplayer experience driven by social-discovery—one that allows listeners to enjoy audio from Spotify directly within Facebook, without switching between apps. 

Starting today in select markets* including Malaysia, Spotify Premium users can discover and experience songs and episodes with full playback directly from Spotify inside the Facebook app on iOS and Android. Spotify Free users can enjoy the same great experience via shuffle mode with accompanying ads from Spotify. 

Beyond Spotify shares to Facebook News Feed, fans will also have the ability to play songs via the miniplayer through select verified artists’ posts, or even from user-uploaded videos on Facebook that contain licensed music. Your reach just got even greater. 

Here’s how to launch the miniplayer:

  1. Tap the “Play” button on the song you, your friend, family member, or favorite creator shared from Spotify to their Facebook News Feed.
  2. The first time you’re using the miniplayer, you’ll see a consent dialog open, click on Connect to continue. 
  3. If you’re logged in to Spotify, the apps will automatically switch and playback will start from within the Spotify app. (If you’re not logged in, you will be prompted to do so.)
  4. Spotify keeps playing even if you keep scrolling down your News Feed, but you’ll have control over playback options so you can pause or dismiss the miniplayer.

Over the past year, we’ve seen how social media continues to be an incredibly important way to connect with friends and loved ones — especially when gathering in person is more challenging. Audio continues to be something that brings people together.
