How To Video: Share music on Spotify

1:26 /

Donald Bell shows you how to share music and make it a more social experience through Spotify.

Hey, I'm Donald Bell for cnet.com. Today, I'm going to show you all the ways you can share music using the Spotify to make it a more social experience. The first obvious step is down here on the Now Playing window. We'll find the Share button that will blast out a song link and a personal message to your links Facebook, Twitter, Spotify, or Microsoft Messenger accounts. You can get the same share option when you right-click on a playlist or any track on Spotify whether it's playing or not. This menu also offers direct weblink to the songs which you can plug-in to any e-mail or whatever social network or blog post that you want. Now, if you don't want to scream out your love of Neil Diamond to the entire world, you can also share music to individual friends by dragging and dropping songs on their icon and adding a message. On their end, they'll see the shared music in their inbox in the upper left-hand corner. Now, if you're a Last.fm user who's already comfortable sharing your listening habits in that arena, it's also worth mention that Spotify can track your plays and automatically post them to your Last.fm account. Open up the Preferences Menu and you'll see a Last.fm option right at the top. So, those are all the great ways I've found to share music on Spotify. For more tips and tutorials, check out CNET's How To blog.
