Get ready to boogie, because Facebook is expanding its music sharing features. The rollout includes a Lip Sync Live feature and will eventually allow users to to pin their favorite songs to their profiles, TechCrunch reports.
Facebook music on Stories, News Feed
Starting Wednesday, you can add song clips to photos or videos you share in News Feed posts or Facebook Stories. You can do this by searching for the song and adding a music sticker with the artist and song name. It works exactly like adding music to Instagram Stories, which became a feature of the platform in June.
Unfortunately, for now your friends won’t be able to hear the entire song, but they’ll get a sneak preview along with a collage video featuring artists and album art.
Facebook’s Lip Sync Live
Facebook’s Lip Sync Live is already available in many countries. The feature lets you record yourself singing and share the result with your friends. Some popular songs will include lyrics onscreen to imitate a karaoke-experience. As of Wednesday, the feature is also available to artists and creators to give them an outlet to “connect with their fans,” according to Facebook’s blog.
Facebook music on profiles
Another new feature will let users add songs to a new music section on their profiles. People will be able to see what songs you’re into, share your favorite song, or add the song to their own profile (just like Myspace, remember?).
Facebook has music licensing deals with Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Merlin, Kobalt, and Global Music Rights, Variety reports.
