  3. 3
    Find and tap on the Spotify icon, which is black and green
    .
    This will open up the app. It will take us to the browse page, which is like the Spotify homepage. If we're not logged in, it will take us to the log in page. To learn how to log in to Spotify, refer to my other video.

  4. 4
    Tap the 3 horizontal white lines in the top left-hand corner
    .
    This brings up a new menu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    We can search for a song using the "Search" option, which we've talked you through in another video as well
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Alternatively, we can simply play the last song we listened to by dragging up at the bottom of the screen
    .
    We can also easily browse anywhere on Spotify to find a song to share.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    We can see that we were listening to this song already, but it's paused
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    What we need to do, once we have the song on the screen (making sure it's the big window, not just the bar at the bottom), is tap on the 3 horizontal white dots in a circle
    .
    It will be on the right-hand side of the title and name. This brings up a menu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Tap on the fourth option down, titled "Share"
    .
    It has an arrow pointing towards the right, on the left-hand side.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Now we have the option to Post or Send this song
    .
    To begin, we're going to tap on "Post to", which has an indication of two people and an arrow on the left-hand side.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Now we can edit the text
    .
    It currently says, "#NowPlaying "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone from I Put A Spell On You".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Below that, we have the choices to post to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, indicated by their icons
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can also tap on "MORE" which brings up other options to send via message or mail as well
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We'll just tap on Facebook for now
    .
    The icon will then show in color.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We can also post to Twitter, but we will need to connect if we haven't already
    .
    The reason it didn't ask us to connect to Facebook is because we logged in with Facebook, so if we didn't log in with Facebook and used our email instead, it will bring up this window as well. For now, we will only share with Facebook since the format is pretty much the same for Facebook, mail, message, Twitter and Tumblr.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .

  26. 26
    We will tap on "Email"
    .

  28. 28
    Tap on "Message" to share it as a text message
    .

    It's the same format, so all we would have to do is add a contact at the top and send it like a normal SMS message
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    We will tap on "WhatsApp" to demonstrate that

    Tap on the chosen contact

    Now we can paste the link somewhere such as a message, or maybe compose our own Facebook post by posting the link instead. We would just hold down and tap on "Paste" like we always do with our iPhone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    Tap on the arrow in the top left-hand corner to go back
