Facebook wants you to express yourself through music

Australian and global Facebook users get three new features from this morning.

They “will allow users to express themselves and connect with others through music on the platform,” according to the company.

Music on Stories

Users can go beyond simply sharing what they’re listening to.

Now, when users take a photo or video from the Camera or grab one from their camera roll, they can find and add a song directly to their Stories to enhance the moment.

Lip Sync Live

Facebook has been slowly rolling out Lip Sync Live, making it possible for people around the world to go live and express themselves with music.

As of today, there are several updates to the feature:

  • Lip Sync Live has now been rolled out to profiles around the world
  • It is available to more artists and creators by expanding to Pages, giving them more ways for them to connect with and engage fans around music.
  • Lyrics have been added making it easier to sing along.

Songs on profile

Users will soon have the ability to add music to their profile.

As part of this, users will be able to pin a song to the top of their profile for people to see it more easily, discover new music and learn more about them.
