New Delhi: Facebook has introduced new music features, including an option to add a song to photos and videos they share to Facebook Stories.
“We’re announcing new ways for people to express themselves and share their love of music on Facebook. We’re launching Music on Facebook Stories, expanding Lip Sync Live, and soon will be making it possible to add songs to your Profile,” Facebook wrote on its news post.
Facebook that it is bringing the feature to News Feed, too.
Adding a song to a photo or video, you will have to take a photo or video from the Facebook Camera or grab one from your camera roll, then tap on the sticker icon and select the music sticker. Once you find the song you want to add, you can pick the perfect part to share and add the sticker with the artist and song name. Move the sticker around and add other stickers and effects to customize your story.
Facebook said it was also rolling out "Lip Sync Live", a feature Facebook introduced in June to let users lip sync to songs, to all profiles in many countries around the world.
The social media giant said that it will soon be launching the ability to add songs — what you’re currently listening to, or your all-time-favorites — to a new music section on your profile. You can also pin a song to the top of your profile to share with friends and help them learn more about you.
Songs added to your profile will also visually showcase the artist and track you choose. When someone plays a song on your profile, they’ll hear a clip of the song and see an accompanying video featuring photos of the artists and album art. They can then choose to add the song to their own profile or visit the artist’s Facebook Page.
