You can now pick a surprise playlist using emojis on Facebook Messenger
Now that you can listen to literally anything you could possibly want at any time using streaming services like Apple Music, it can feel freaking impossible to pick just one playlist. Sometimes you just wanna play music roulette and have someone else pick for you, ya know?
Thanks to a new Facebook Messenger feature, you can *literally* do that.
Starting today,Â Messenger users can interact with the Apple Music bot on their ownÂ orÂ share songs with their friends using the Apple Music chat extension in a group or one-on-one conversation.
Plus, you can browse for music using an emoji. Just pick your fave, and Messenger will give you a suggestion â€” we’re partial to the flame emoji playlist. You’ll see what it is when you try it 😉
Hereâ€™s how it works:
1. In a group or one-on-one conversation, you can tap the plus (+) icon to add the Apple Music ‘chat extension’ to the conversation. From there, you can share songs with friends.
2. To interact with the bot on your own, simply search â€˜Apple Musicâ€™ from your home screen in Messenger and from there, you can discover new artists and music genres quickly and easily
You can share and listen to full tracks on Apple Music RIGHT NOW. And if you don’t have a subscription to Apple Music, hey, you can still listen to some 30-second snippets. Click here to get started.
