Facebook recently unveiled its latest app extension called 'Music Stories.' The app allows iPhone users to share 30 second clips of music on their Facebook timelines to introduce their friends to new music.

The Music Stories extension will provide consumers the chance to hear clips of great music. The app was made possible with the integration of both Apple Music and Spotify. When a clip is posted, users can listen and either disregard it or follow to accompanying link to its respective service. The links will guide consumers to another online platform where they can purchase the newly found song.

While the app extension is only compatible with iOS devices, the brand hopes to extend the services to other platforms as well. The ultimate goal is that "artists will share more, friends will share and engage more and music will become a better part of the Facebook experience overall."
