YouTube has officially accepted Android users to share songs directly via Snapchat in the form of Snap Stories after a month of its launch on iOS devices.
The recent development will successfully send what users are currently playing to Snapchat.
This includes album artwork, artist name, app logo, and link for viewers to listen. The background is a gradient pulled from the cover art.
Snapchat also announced an update that will allow users to change their usernames without the deletion of their accounts.
Open the YouTube Music app on an Android or iOS device
Tap on the song that is to be shared
Tap on the 3-dot menu
In the options that appear, tap on 'Share'
From the list of applications that open, tap on Snapchat
Once the song opens in the Snapchat app, users will see a clickable thumbnail image with the album's art
Then, users can edit their Snap story
Once users are done with the Snap story, they will be able to send it as a direct message or with Snap followers
The first indication that YouTube Music might be able to share songs to Instagram and Snapchat emerged in 2020 and was finally launched for YouTube Music on iOS in 2021 and it’s now available to Android.
Meanwhile, the Instagram integration does not yet work and still crashes upon sharing.
