As a public music listening platform, Spotify is used and supported by many people. With millions of music resources that we can access, Spotify has collected songs and other content from artists worldwide. 

Sign up for a Spotify account, and you can enjoy basic listening services for free. In addition, Spotify will recommend your favorite music based on your usual listening style. You can build your music collections and playlists. If you want to enjoy more functions, Spotify Premium is available for you to choose from.

Spotify only gives access to songs and podcasts on its own, and we are not allowed to export the music out of the app. 

The good news is that in May 2018, Spotify added the function to share music to Instagram. And in September 2019, it allowed users to share Spotify music to Facebook stories. But it only gives a name tag of the music. You can click the tag and enter the Spotify app to listen to songs. 

While sharing a single track, a 15-second preview will be played before entering Spotify. This means you can listen to part of the music on the Facebook stories, and then you need to go to Spotify for the whole piece. 

This feature has attracted many people's interest since it was published. In this passage, we will introduce the specific steps to share Spotify music on Facebook stories
