Facebook will now allow users to add music to Stories and also in their News Feed posts. Facebook has introduced new music features, including an option to add a song to photos and videos that has been shared to Facebook Stories.
“And, we’re bringing it to News Feed, too!” Facebook said in a statement, adding that users would soon be able to add songs to their Profile as well.
Adding a song to a photo or video on Facebook works, in the same way, the feature functions on Instagram.
The feature will, however, be available in select markets in the initial run including the US, Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
The feature will be available on both Android and iOS.
Facebook has already inked licensing deals with behemoths such as Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony-ATV Music Publishing, and others, and will offer several million songs for users to post alongside their Stories or News Feed posts.
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.
“We are also opening up the feature to more artists and creators by expanding to Pages, giving them more ways to connect with their fans,” said Facebook’s Fred Beteille, Head of Product, Music, and Rights, and Tamara Hrivnak, Head of Music Business Development and Partnerships.
Facebook is also adding lyrics to Lip Sync Live with songs such as Dua Lipa’s New Rules, Khalid’s Better and Maroon 5’s Girls Like You to boot.
