Sharing songs and Playlists doesn't work well

Sharing songs and Playlists doesn't work well

Hey there, 

I often share Songs via the Sharing Feature of Spotify either using WhatsApp or Instagram (Direct). However when doing so the links aren't working as expected. When an android user sends me a Spotify link through Instagram I receive a snippet to Playback that Song. If I'm doing that it justs sends a plain old link. I was also told that Android users cannot Open my links sent through WhatsApp. 

is there anything I can try or configure? Or is tue sharing feature broken in the iOS Spotify App?

Hey there @Ig3li,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


Would you mind sending us a screenshot of how the link appears on an Android phone when you send it from your iPhone? You can attach it to your next response by using the Insert image option in the post editor. Make sure not to send any private info. We'll take a closer look.


Also, could you let us know exactly what happens when an Android user tries to open the link you sent them?


We'll be on the lookout.
