Facebook Stories now support previews of Spotify tracks

Spotify has deepened its Facebook integrations. The social network now supports track previews when a song gets added to Facebook Stories. These 15-second snippets can play instantly, and followers can tap “Play on Spotify” to hear the full song. For now, only individual tracks in Stories are getting the previews; any other content will only have a visual display and the option to open Spotify for the full content.

This update follows on the integration between Spotify and Instagram, another Facebook-owned social platform. Instagram introduced support for custom cover art stickers for songs, albums, playlists, or artists on Spotify, and lets music be shared in Instagram Stories and on Instagram Direct. That feature doesn’t include the audio snippet.
