Last year, Instagram announced integration with Spotify where if users wanted, they would be able to add music from Spotify into their Instagram Stories. If you don’t use Spotify but would still like to take advantage of the feature, you’re in luck because Pandora has also announced support for Instagram Stories.
This means that in addition to Spotify, users will also be able to pick from Pandora’s catalogue of songs and podcasts that they can add to their Stories. According to Pandora’s announcement,
Great music and podcasts were meant to be shared.
That’s why we’re excited that starting today, Pandora users across all tiers of service can share their favorite songs, albums, podcasts, playlists or Pandora stations with their friends via Instagram Stories, and also give them free access to Pandora’s entire library of music and podcasts!
If you come across a song that you like, you will also be able to click on it where you can then access it directly in Pandora if you choose. Pandora also notes that if a user who clicks on the song but does not have a subscription to Pandora Premium, they’ll still be able to access shared content for free, but after they view a short ad. This is part of Pandora’s Premium Access feature.
