My Question or Issue

I'm trying to share music through messenger. It says it was sent, but nothing goes in the chat. I have to copy the url and paste it in the textbox.

 

Cheers

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for bearing with us while we looked into this.

 

The team working on this issue has identified that the issue has been caused due to a change on Facebook's end. We've gone ahead and reported this to them, but this is not something that we can fix on our end.

 

We suggest you keep your app updated. In the meantime, you can use the workaround provided here.

 

Cheers!

My problem is when I copy/paste a songlink to someone in Messenger, only the link appears. Not really a big problem, but previously when you pasted a link in Messenger it automatically showed a thumbnail of the album that the song is on, PLUS the link to the song. That way the person you're sending it to can see what song you're sending them, not only the link. And when it comes to Instagram: when I copy and paste a spotifylink in the messenger there, it only shows the link, but it's not possible to click it. Anyone who knows what's up?

Same problem. Was working until towards the end of December 2020.

I just found out today that I can't share a song via Messenger. 

I've restarted my phone and even uninstalled the Messenger app, but it didn't make any difference.

This is annoying to be honest.

I have the same issue on both of my phone and my laptop. On my phone, it  appears sent but it doesn't show in the chat. On my laptop, it just does not work (error message). I use the Share link option meanwhile, but it's really annoying. 
I hope that we will find the solution. Thanks !
