The feature improves music discovery and sharing on Facebook.

Facebook's Music Stories, the social network's new post format that lets users listen to 30-second previews of songs, is expanding to the desktop, the company said. Launched in November on iOS, Music Stories previews shared songs from popular streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.

Today, Facebook is adding four new music-streaming services: Deezer, Napster, Rhapsody, and the Taiwan-based KKBOX music service. NPR fans will be happy to hear that they, too, can enjoy sleek previews on Facebook.

Music Stories has a “Listen & Scroll” functionality that automatically plays audio clips on the background whilst giving you the freedom to explore your News Feed. By launching Music Stories, Facebook hopes to improve music discovery and sharing on Facebook. It also suggests a strong push into audio.

Earlier this month, Music Stories completed its rollout to all iOS devices, allowing users to preview songs from Apple Music, iTunes, and Spotify. Facebook also tested podcast previews of Serial, a popular podcast.

Facebook plans to add more streaming services in the future. Music Stories is a brilliant feature. It lets you listen to new music and news without leaving Facebook. It also allows users to purchase music on iTunes and subscriptions for Apple Music and Spotify. It's unclear, however, if Facebook will get a share of the purchases.
