Facebook Messenger gets a bit closer with Apple Music

Social media juggernaut Facebook is making some updates to its Messenger app, including an upcoming collaboration with Apple Music. The deal was announced at the company’s F8 conference, although few specifics were shared.

From the presentation at F8, it seems like this agreement will allow Facebook users to browse Apple Music from within Messenger and send tracks from the chat program. Playback will also be added inside Messenger. Past integrations for Messenger in this vein have taken listeners out of the Facebook-owned app and into the music app. No launch date was shared for this collaboration, only that it is “coming soon.”
