Spotify have just announced an awesome new feature where we can now choose to share our music straight onto Instagram Stories.
This is a massive game changer for bands if you have music on there. In this guide I’m gonna show you how to do it.
I’m really excited about this new feature as before I’ve always had to say something like “hit the link in my bio to go listen” which is a bit of an ask, so having a link right there takes away that step. I’ll show you how to do it!
Before we dive in, it kinda goes without saying but I’m going to assume you have music on Spotify as well as have an instagram account. We’re going to be doing this on a mobile device as that’s the only way we can post instagram stories for the time being.
#1 – Ok, first of all navigate to the album, track or playlist you want to share and hit the options icon at the top right of the screen.
#2 – Now choose the Share option and select Instagram Stories.
#3 – You’ll now automatically hop on over to Instagram where a story will created for you. You can add a message, hashtags, location etc as normal or just go ahead and hit the plus icon to share the story.
Go have a look at your story and you’ll see that it features a ‘Play on Spotify’ link at the top where people can click on and start listening!
And it’s as simple as that! I think this is a great feature for those of us who have music on Spotify.
