Facebook is now rolling out a new extension to all Messenger users that allows them to share music from the streaming service Apple Music, as reported by Engadget. Members can search for a listen to full songs in the messaging service, while those who aren’t subscribed can still hear 30-second clips of tracks shared. If you recall, Spotify recently introduced a similar feature for Messenger but didn’t allow subscribers to listen to full songs while in the chat thread. But, at least for now, it looks like Apple has the exclusive.

A unique factor for Apple’s music-sharing extension happens to involve emojis. By sending an emoji to the Apple Music bot in Messenger, it’ll respond with a playlist based on what it detects. So for instance, by sending a grinning emoji, I was sent back a song from an actual artist named Grinning. As always, if emojis don’t do it for you, you can also simply type in an artist and song.
