Facebook recently introduced the ability for users to add music to their Facebook Stories posts. Our guide will show you how this works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook application on iOS.

Step 1: Once you’ve captured a new photo or video, or imported a photo or video from your device into Stories, tap the Stickers icon at the top of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the “Music” sticker.

Step 3: On this screen, you have multiple options. You can scroll through the list of popular songs and tap “Add” to the right of a song if you want to add it to your Stories post. Or, you can tap one of the genres or moods at the top of the screen to browse songs that fit that particular genre or mood. (If you want to see additional genre and mood options, tap “See More…”) Finally, you can search for a song manually by tapping “Search music” at the top of the screen.

Step 4: When you find the song you want to add to your Stories post, tap “Add” to the right of it. Note: You can preview a song by tapping on its picture to the left of the song’s name.

Step 5: Facebook will automatically highlight a portion of the song to play when someone views your Stories post. If you want to change which section plays, swipe left or right at the bottom of the screen to highlight a different portion of the song.

Step 6: Tap “Done” when you’re done choosing which portion of the song to play.

From here, the song will appear as a sticker on your Stories post, which you can resize, rotate and move around the screen to fit your post. You can also tap the Sticker to change its appearance. Finally, you have the option to add other elements to your post, like text or another sticker, before sharing it.
