Spotify Stories In Facebook’s News Feed Offer ‘Listen Later’ Option

Facebook appears to be tinkering with more ways to enable users to discover and listen to music via the social network. Following the discovery of a “listen using MySpace” button earlier this week, a News Feed story from music application Spotify offered users the option to “listen later.”

The listen later option appeared in the same menu as “add to music” and Facebook’s various share options, with the menu accessed by clicking on the plus sign that appears on thumbnails of the covers of albums users are listening to.

Readers: Have you seen this in any Spotify stories on your News Feeds, or spotted anything similar in other apps?

Thank you to Matteo Gamba of Wimdu for the tip and screen grab.
