Create Spotify playlists with your friends directly from Messenger now

You and your friends can now create Spotify playlists together without ever leaving your Messenger chat.

Collaborative playlists just got a whole lot easier to create as Spotify have introduced shared creation into Messenger. Now when you’re chatting with friends on Facebook Messenger you can share a playlist and then anyone else in the chat can add songs without ever leaving the chat.

The new feature is called Group Playlists for Messenger. In their release statement Spotify said: “Ideal for parties, road trips, or simply collecting new favourites, Group Playlists provide a seamless way for users to collaborate and share music easily than ever before.

To share or create a playlist to collaborate on you simply need to select Spotify’s chat extension from the blue ‘+’ symbol next to your message box. Once the playlist is shared anyone in the chat can easily press ‘Add a Song’ to be taken

The feature is an expansion of the bot Spotify released for messenger earlier this year. The bot allows users to share songs with friends over messenger, a feature that has clearly gotten a sophisticated update with Group Playlists for Messenger. Users can add to the playlist even if they’re not on Spotify, so no-one is left out.

Group Playlists for Messenger is available right now and you can get started here: m.me/Spotify
