Today, Spotify launched a new feature for Facebook Messenger that lets you create playlists of songs with your friends.
Group Playlists for Messenger leverages the existing Spotify Chat extension for Facebook’s app. The extension allows users to create group playlists, share them with friends, and then let those friends add new songs to that same playlist.
“With Group Playlists for Messenger, users can create new Spotify playlists with friends and immediately begin collaborating to build out their perfect mix. Ideal for parties, road trips, or simply collecting new favorites, Group Playlists provide a seamless way for users to collaborate and share music more easily than ever before.”
While the person creating the playlist must be a current Spotify user, others in the conversation thread can add more songs to it, even if they aren’t on Spotify.
The Group Playlists extension can be accessed from Facebook Messenger using this link.
