Apple seems confident that they will improve their market share and gain additional users on Android.
Facebook integarated Spotify

Facebook has integrated Spotify sharing to its messaging service.
The new feature works for mobile users by clicking the additional menu item selector via FB-Messenger, choose Spotify, and then pick a song thatís either playing or cued up on a playlist. Then comes the option to share a singleís artwork, which another user can then tap to listen to on Spotify.
Spotify already has the option to share songs within its own app via email, Facebook and WhatsApp.
This new partnership makes it possible to share music from either platform, in particular one where people might already be chatting about music.

Apple Music can be expected as the next integration via Facebook messenger.
