Facebook Announces Spotify Music Bot for Facebook Messenger

Facebook has announced that Spotify has a bot for letting friends discover and share music directly in their chats. The Spotify bot will be able to serve up music recommendations based on mood, activity, or genres, or you can search across Spotify’s catalog to share songs, albums and playlists with your friends in your Messenger chat.

The new bot, however, brings the search and discovery features into Messenger itself, instead of being an external experience.
