The user needs to navigate to the playlist, album or the track they would like to share and even tap on the menu button which is three dots. The first thing that user gets to see is the album art with their Spotify code directly beneath it. The user can then save the image on their phones or can also let their friends scan it from Spotify in order to share the music.
