Sometimes, words and pictures fail to define our personality. And when that happens, music comes to the rescue. There’s always a song that seems so relatable that you can include it in your bio if given a chance. Well, Facebook heard it. Now you can add your favorite music on your Facebook profile.
Yup, you read that right. However, the music or the songs won’t auto play when someone visits your profile. They will have to play the song manually in the music section of your profile. While you can add multiple songs to your profile, you can also pin a song that will be visible at the start of your profile.
Let’s check the music feature on Facebook. By the end of the post, you will know how to add music to your Facebook profile and stories.
Availability of the Music Feature
The music feature is currently limited to the mobile apps of Facebook. That is, you can use it only on Android and iOS devices. It won’t be visible on the desktop version of Facebook.
Where is Music Feature on Facebook Profile
Unless you check your Facebook profile screen regularly, you might not even notice the music section. When you open your profile screen, scroll down, and you will find it next to Photos and Life Events cards. You might have to slide the cards to view the Music card on your profile.
How to Add Music to FB Profile
Now that you know the location of the feature, it’s easy to add songs to your profile. Here are the steps for your reference:
Step 1: Go to your Facebook profile and tap on the Music card, as shown above.
Step 2: A blank screen will open since you are using it for the first time. Tap on the add (+) icon at the top. The song library will open. Use the search at the top to find the song of your choice. Tap on the song to preview it. Tap on the Add button to add it to your profile
Step 3: Once added, go back to the profile screen and refresh it by swiping down. You will see that the music section isn’t blank now. Tap on it to view your playlist. To add more songs, again tap on the add icon and hit the Add button next to the songs you want to include in your list.
How Can Visitors Listen to Songs on Your Profile
When a friend taps on the Music section in your profile, it will show them the songs that you have added. Tapping on the song will play a sample (1 minute 30 seconds long) of the song.
They can either add the song to their profile or view the artist’s Facebook page by tapping on the three-dot icon. You can listen to the full song on Spotify as Facebook recently added support for Spotify.
