HELP! Can't share songs and playlists with friends?

Hi to all

 

I want to share specfic songs with friends (non-Facebook) who also have accounts on Spotify.

 

Here's my problem: I can see the friend I wish to share music with by typing "spotify:user:USERNAME (aka my friend)" into the search bar.

 

However, when I right click a particular song listed under the 'SONGS' tab from 'Your Music' and choose the 'Share/Send To' option, when I enter the friend's username under 'Enter a friend's name' I get the message "Sorry, no results could be found.'

 

How do I solve this? Do I need to 'follow' a friend first before I can share in this way? Is there some other version of a Spotify username that I need to enter? If not, what exactly do I need to do to able to share music wih friends?

 

Many thanks to anyone who can help me solve this extremely frustrating conundrum..!

Thanks for the reply. So to clarify, if they're not a FB friend, then - in order for me to share music with a friend - they need to follow me or is it enough for me to follow them?

 

Thanks

That current solution is asking the user to also follow you. If you think that you should be capable of sending messages to users who you follow and doesn't follow you, you should submit an idea here -> https://community.spotify.com/t5/Idea-Submissions/idb-p/ideas_submissions . I am not working on Spotify so the only way to send your feedback is through the Idea Submission. Hope this helps :)

I have the exact same issue. I also tried turning on Facebook to fix this issue and it says I am already connected. But then it won't share any Facebook friends either.

 

I can't share songs with anyone in Spotify. Help?

No! Unfortunately not. I was able to link Facebook finally, so I will just
share that way :(.
