Spotify’s music player appears on Facebook
And last week, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, revealed For a company Facebook, that the company is working with Spotify on new music features that allow users to listen to them while using social network applications.
And Project Boombox lets you listen to any music or podcast episode shared by a friend, family member, artist or creator directly from your news feed.
Spotify says: The first time you click to listen, a dialogue box appears asking for approval to connect music and social applications, and if you log into Spotify, the music or any other sound will start.
She added: If you are not logged in, you are prompted to do so, and the audio content continues to play while you use the Facebook app, 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 the Spotify mobile app.
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.
And if you don’t have a Spotify account, you can listen to a 30-second preview of the song or episode.
It includes the full list of countries where the new Spotify music player is available within Facebook applications Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, Thailand, Uruguay and the United States.
The cooperation with Spotify is one of the many new audio projects that Facebook is working on, as the company announced last week the details of its attempt to compete with Clubhouse through the audio rooms only feature, the new broadcast feature and other elements.
And while all of these things are still a long way off, Facebook said: The audio rooms only feature should be available for use sometime this summer.
