“Every now and then, on Facebook, someone shares a song or album from Spotify. Not having a subscription, I can’t play the music,” Kirk McElhearn writes for Kirkville. “However, if I click the Play button, I can hear 30-second previews of the songs. If I were a Spotify user, I could listen to the music in its entirety, and even add it to my library.”
“Apple Music needs one of these. I suspect Apple hasn’t yet introduced it because there aren’t enough Apple Music users, but this is a way to get people to notice Apple Music,” McElhearn writes. “Because I don’t see anything about Apple Music on Facebook; I only see the occasional mention of Apple Music on Twitter.”
“Of course, part of the reason for this is because Spotify has a web player and Apple Music doesn’t. You can only play Apple Music in iTunes (or on an iOS device),” McElhearn writes. “Perhaps Apple needs to make a web player, or at least a web preview tool, so they can have a widget where users can share music, and others can discover it.”
