Facebook for iOS gets a new music feature called Music Stories. It will allow users to listen to songs (within 30 seconds), share albums from Spotify and Apple Music, but also to purchase from iTunes.

Music Stories take shared on the social networking songs from Spotify and Apple Music and repackage them into new Facebook audio player allows users to listen to songs and albums without having to leave the application.

Interestingly, you do not need to have installed Apple Music or Spotify on your phone, or to be a subscriber to any of the streaming services. Users can save songs in their music collections or buy them from iTunes. If you want to share music from another streaming service, Facebook says Music Stories will support more such in the near future.

This is the first big step on Facebook in music after the start of the deep integration with Spotify in 2011.

In fact there is no clear indication why Facebook does not allow streaming of entire songs from Spotify or Apple Music, but we can expect that to change.
