Spotify's iMessage app shares clips of your favorite songs

Spotify's iMessage app shares clips of your favorite songs
From Engadget - September 14, 2017

In iMessage, you will need to tap the app button to find the Spotify icon, which will appear if you have the latest Spotify app on your iPhone. You can then search Spotify for any tracks you want to share with your buddies on iMessage. Tapping the song you want to share puts a little preview and link in iMessage, similar to the way you can share songs from the Spotify app itself. The difference here seems to be that when you share via the new Spotify iMessage app, your recipient gets a full screen preview of the track in iMessage. When you share from the main app to iMessages, your friend gets taken to the main Spotify app or a web page.

Once your friend gets the song you shared in iMessage, they can play a 30-second preview, or they can hit the Play on Spotify button. If they are a Spotify member, they will also see a little Spotify icon in the upper left corner of the iMessage screen. They will need to enable the new Spotify iMessage app, however, to access the preview.
