While listening to music on Rhapsody, simply tap the Twitter icon, add comments and hashtags, and share the full-length song. 

Friends and followers will see the Rhapsody audio card in their Twitter stream and can press the play button to hear the song that inspired the Tweet.

The song will play without leaving the Twitter app. If they’d like to learn more about the music streaming service, Twitter users can tap on the “Learn about Rhapsody” button on the audio card to download the Rhapsody app.

“We loved how Twitter audio cards work seamlessly within the Twitter app and we wanted to make the experience of sharing music with friends easy by bringing great licensed content to one of the world’s largest conversation platforms,” said Ethan Rudin, chief financial officer, Rhapsody International. “Our goal with this launch is to not only help make streaming more social, but also to reinforce that music isn’t free – every song played is accounted for and fully paid up.”

Subscribers can share songs from an available library of 34 million tracks. The songs can be shared from the mobile versions of Rhapsody or a desktop browser. Initially, audio cards sharing to Twitter will be only available in the United States.

Rhapsody Premier, the company’s on-demand subscription offering, is $9.99 a month, while its more limited UnRadio service is $4.99 a month.
