Despite the fact that the quality of Snapchat’s Android app has long been questioned, the company has recently been getting along swimmingly with Google. In December, Snap introduced Quick Tap, which allows users to jump straight to the camera UI without having to launch the app. Meanwhile, today’s Pixel Feature Drop includes Night Sight compatibility for improved low-light performance. YouTube Music now allows users to share directly to Snapchat, adding to the ever-expanding list of features.
According to Reddit (via 9to5Google), selecting Snapchat from the share menu in YouTube Music creates a page with the album art and buttons to open the song or album directly from the app. You’ll be acquainted with the experience if you’ve ever used Spotify to share your favorite new releases of the week. Google hasn’t done much to distinguish its share card from the competition, but it is, at the very least, another feature that its music service now provides.
Sharing is vital in 2022, from music services to social apps – it’s ideal for sharing your favorite songs, playlists, podcasts, and more. Direct shares to Snapchat and Instagram have long been allowed by apps like Spotify, and YouTube Music is finally making progress on this front as of today. Despite the fact that Snapchat and Instagram icons have been on the share sheet since 2020, none of them work at the moment.
Unfortunately, Instagram fans will have to wait a little longer because the feature is yet to arrive on Meta’s photo-centric platform. In fact, just the option to share to DMs appeared in the list of possibilities in my experience. This feature appears to be available in most recent versions of YouTube Music, so start hitting that share symbol if you’re ready to give your followers some song recommendations.
