30 seconds song preview on Facebook not showing up

So, when you share a song from Spotify to Facebook there used to be a way of making the 30 seconds preview appear by using the Debugger Tool. However, since a few weeks, this doesn't work anymore, aparently for everyone, is there a new tool I don't know about yet? A way to fix this?

 

Just the pic with the link is really uninvinting

Ive been able to share links to songs on Facebook and have it play a 30 second clip of them which was one of my favorite features. Since a few days ago, the player is completely gone when I share to fb and only gives the album cover. It's super annoying and I just want my friends to be able to hear what I'm listening to. Not even sure if I want premium anymore because my main thing was to look up songs I liked and share them with my everyone and it totally undoable now.

It looks like Spotify and Facebook no longer support this feature that shows a preview of the Spotify song when you post it on Facebook.

Yep, the 30 second mini preview player doesn't show on Facebook anymore when sharing songs, just a static album cover image, which sucks cause I share songs all the time to my FB page/groups.   Using the Facebook Sharing Debugger website doesn't work anymore either, no matter how many times you "scrape" the link.

 

Don't know if it's a Facebook issue or a Spotify issue.

Yes, not having 30 sec preview is definitely uninviting. It's pretty noticeable, that people are less likely to share songs from Spotify on Facebook.

I got this response when I Tweeted them about this  two weeks ago

 

”Hey Carl! We're afraid previewing songs is no longer a feature, but will let the right folks know you'd like to see this again. For anything else, let us know /JX”


I’m missing the feature as well and now some times it doesn’t even show a picture in a browser it says something like “attachments not available” really annoying. Here’s the tweet
