Facebook is adding on Tuesday a “Listen” button to some its band and artist pages that give users an easy way to listen to their favorite songs directly on the site.
As of now, fans can listen to songs from artists such as Justin Bieber and Linkin Park to former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash directly on Facebook via various music services such as Spotify and MOG via the Facebook itself. Although the “Listen” button is only available on some artist pages, more are expected to get the button added soon.
Located next to the “Like” and “Message” buttons on an artist’s page, the “Listen” button will connect users to the music service they use most frequently and play popular songs from that artist. The first time you click on the button, a prompt from one of the participating services will pop up and ask for you to grant access
Since the music services are apps connected with Facebook Timeline, listening activity will be published to your page while listening.
