Facebook, a member of Music Biz, has announced a new wave of music products launching on the social network, aiming to better integrate music into how people share photo and video. The collection of features includes the launch of Music on Facebook Stories and an expansion of Lip Sync Live, as well as a forthcoming option to add songs to a personal profile.
Music on Facebook Stories, as the name suggests, will allow users to add a song to photos and videos shared to their stories. Users will also be able to use the new feature on their news feeds by taking a photo or video from their camera roll, tapping the sticker icon and then selecting the music sticker. There are a few other customizable features, such as adding other stickers and effects.
As Lip Sync Live is now rolled out to all profiles in many countries around the world, Facebook says it plans to provide more real-time interactions between artists and fans. And with the teased plans to allow users to add songs to a new music section on their personal profiles, Facebook explained the tracks will be pinned to the top of pages so friends and followers can easily see them as well.
