Soon You Will Be Able To Listen To Music Directly From Facebook Messenger App Without Leaving the App

“Music on Messenger is going to be a good thing this year,”said Facebook’s David Marcus at the company's F8 conference. To that effect, Facebook is going to integrate Spotify and Apple Music “very soon” directly into Messenger.

The feature uses a new Messenger Platform tool called Chat Extensions, which essentially allow you to perform actions within Messenger you’d normally have to switch apps to try.

You pick Spotify from Messenger’s app list, search for an artist or song, and then just share it right in Messenger. At no point do you need to exit your chat to browse for music in an app, you do it on the go.

Facebook didn’t mention anything about other music services, but given Chat Extensions are part of the Messenger Platform, it’s likely just a matter of other companies putting in the effort to integrate their services with the chat app.
