Spotify Timestamp is here to conveniently simplify the process of using social media to share whatever you enjoy spending your time listening to.
The Swedish media services and audio streaming platform is rolling out a brand new feature that will particularly excite those listeners who can’t seem to get enough of sharing their favorite podcast episodes and tracks with their friends.
Devidiscourse notes from Mashable that Spotify’s latest updates dedicated to better social media sharing are now being made available across the globe for Android and iOS users alike.
In a blogpost, Spotify announced further details on its new updated features: “We’re constantly evolving the Spotify experience to meet listener needs and working to provide the best possible audio experience for listeners around the world. These three updates make sharing music and podcasts easier than ever”, the company said.
What does Spotify Timestamp let you do?
Among Spotify’s most notable fresh features is Spotify Timestamp, which has been developed to be particularly useful for podcast sharing.
It can be frustrating when you’re dying for a friend to hear that particular seven-minute tangent your favorite podcaster unexpectedly rambles on about in the middle of an episode. Even more so knowing that your friend will likely put off your suggestion to listen to it, all because of the minor hassle of them having to scroll themselves to the exact second–or “timestamp”–that that fascinating turn of conversation begins.
Well, worry no more! Now, whenever the urge to share an episode (or moments of one) hits, a Spotify user can quickly send a podcast to anyone of their choosing so that their recipient may immediately begin playing it at whichever specific moment the sender intends for them to start listening from.
To make use of Spotify Timestamp, simply click or tap the “share” button on your specific podcast of choice. You will then find a “switch to share” feature for your present playtime.
More of Spotify’s new updates.
Spotify Timestamp isn’t the only new feature coming to make social media sharing easier for users. Watch out for the platform’s Canvas feature which will transform static songs into showcases of eye-catching video art to aid in enhancing listeners’ musical experiences.
Furthermore, users will also be able to share any tracks they want to in collaboration with Canvas through apps such as Instagram and Snapchat.
To top it all off, the platform has also produced an improved sharing menu which provides a much clearer layout for mobile devices. Users will be given a better preview of the things they’re sharing as well as an enhanced destination list. According to Spotify, this will support users in visualizing how their canvases are set to look on their profiles across social media.
Whether you’re one for podcasts, music, or both, being given easier sharing options by your streaming service of choice is always great news.
