Washington [US], May 12 (ANI): Spotify, the popular Swedish audio streaming platform, has introduced an exciting update aimed at simplifying the process of sharing favorite songs or podcast episodes with friends on social media.

According to Mashable, these social sharing updates have been released globally for both iOS and Android users.

In an official blog post, Spotify stated, “We continuously evolve the Spotify experience to meet the needs of our listeners and strive to provide the best audio experience for users worldwide. These three updates make sharing music and podcasts easier than ever before.”

The first feature is podcast timestamp sharing, which allows users to start a podcast episode at a specific moment they want their friends to listen to. This way, the recipients of the shared content won’t have to listen to the entire episode.

To utilize this new feature, users simply need to tap the “share” button while listening to the podcast and then use the “switch to share” option at the current playtime.

Another update is Spotify’s Canvas feature, which turns static song pages into captivating video-art showcases, enhancing the overall music listening experience. Additionally, users can now share their favorite tracks with Canvas on both Instagram and Snapchat.

As part of the updates, Spotify has also introduced an improved sharing menu on mobile with a clearer layout. This menu offers users a preview of what they are sharing, along with an improved destination list. Spotify states that this will help users visualize how the canvas will be presented on their social media profiles.
