How do I share music while on a call?

This article applies to Portal

During a call with other Portal users, you can share music using Spotify, Pandora or iHeartRadio with friends who also have accounts linked to their Portals. App availability differs based on the location where you use Portal. See portal.facebook.com/usage for more information.

By sharing music during a call, you and your friends can listen to the same songs at the same time.

To share music during a call:

  1. During a call, tap the screen to view the call menu.
  2. Tap .

  3. Tap your music app of choice.

  4. Select the song or station you'd like to share.
  5. On the receiving Portal, select Accept.

You can also share music from the Spotify or Pandora mobile apps by selecting your Portal as your output device during a call. The person on the receiving end of music sharing can take over playback control by following the instructions above and sharing a song from their Portal.

Notes:
  • Pandora and iHeartRadio are only currently available when you use Portal in the US.
  • Currently, music sharing only works between Portal devices. Calls to other Messenger devices do not support music sharing.
  • To connect a Spotify account to your Portal, you must have a Spotify Premium account.
  • The person you're sharing music with can control music volume on their Portal, but not song selection.
