Apple Music On iOS 13.4.5 Can Share Songs To Instagram Stories

Apple made iOS 13.4.5 beta 1 available to developers yesterday, just days after pushing iOS 13.4 to the public. That quick turnaround belies the surprisingly large version jump and while we’re yet to learn of any major feature changes one of the smaller ones is particularly interesting.

Apple Music users can share their songs via Instagram stories.

Sharing a song works just the way you might expect it to. Users play the song that they want to share and then tap the share button, followed by the Instagram app’s icon. They’re then shown the Instagram Stories interface and they can share from there.

The story is populated with the song’s name and artist as well as album art. There’s an animated background to make everything look nice, too.

Right now this update is only available to those who are registered developers. It’s possible the update may also be made available to those who are part of Apple’s public beta testing program, but that is by no means guaranteed. Apple may simply make this update available to everyone once it’s ready.

Apple continues to try and make it easier for people to share music from within the Music app, and Instagram Stories are a logical place for them to go. Users who watch one of these new Stories can then tap to open the song in Apple Music. So long as they are a subscriber, of course.
