Pandora users can now share music and podcasts on Instagram Stories. Sharing content from Pandora to Instagram Stories is a really simple process, and it could even help your friends who don’t use Pandora get free access to the music and podcasts Pandora offers.
How to Share Pandora Music on Instagram Stories
As detailed on the Pandora Blog, Pandora now lets you share your favorite music and podcasts on Instagram Stories. So whether you have good or bad taste in audio entertainment you can force your friends to listen by sharing it on Instagram.
To share Pandora content on an Instagram Story, just tap “Share” on the Now Playing screen while listening to whatever it is you want to share with others. This can be an individual song, a full album, a podcast, a playlist, or even a Pandora station.
A special art card for that content will be generated on your Instagram Stories. You can then add text and stickers to the art card, and share it as either a Story or a direct message to a friend, a group of friends, or all of your followers on Instagram.
Friends or followers who see the art card you’ve shared just need to click on “Play on Pandora” to gain access to that content. And even those who don’t subscribe to Pandora Premium can earn a session of free, on-demand listening by watching a few ads.
You Can Also Share Spotify Music on Facebook Stories
This feature is rolling out to select Pandora users first, but will be made available to all users over the coming weeks. Giving you ample time to decide what songs, albums, podcasts, playlists, and stations you most want to share with your friends.
This is a cool feature likely to be welcomed by Pandora users who want an easy way to share content with their friends. And it isn’t the only way of adding music to a Story on a social network, as Spotify now lets you share songs to Facebook Stories too.
