Facebook Teams Up With Spotify For New Music Service

Users will be able to stream and share music through the social network

By |

Facebook has made a deal with Spotify to bring their music-streaming service to Facebook users. The new Facebook version of Spotify – which may be known as either Facebook Music or Spotify on Facebook –  is still being tested, but is likely to be launched within the next two weeks. The service will only be available in countries where Spotify has a presence, which does not currently include the U.S.

According to Forbes, Facebook users will be able to install the service on their desktop and will allow them to stream millions of songs in Spotify's music library through Facebook. The service will also include a function that will allow users to listen to songs simultaneously with friends in their social network.
