At its F8 conference, Facebook revealed it is working on integrating Apple Music into the company’s Messenger app “very soon,” The Next Web reports. The feature is part of Messenger’s new Chat Extensions platform tool that will let users perform functions they’d usually need to leave Messenger to complete. Messenger will soon include an app list, and once Apple Music is selected users will be able to search for an artist or song title and share the resulting link through Messenger without exiting the app. Music can also be played from within Messenger, but there’s no word on whether users will be able to sync up their playback for a simultaneous listening experience.
