Snapchat has finally released its new feature to rival TikTok, Sounds on Snapchat, a new feature that lets users add music to their Snaps.
The feature lets users add music pre or post-capture, and offers “millions” of tracks from both emerging and established artists.
Users can post the music-powered Snap to their profile or send it directly to another user in DM. Just like Instagram Stories, Snaps with music include a link to “Play This Song” on the users’ default streaming platform (they can choose from Spotify, Apple Music or SoundCloud), and can “swipe up” to see the album art, song title, and name of the artist.
Right now, Snapchat has licensing deals in place with a few major and independent labels, meaning not all music artists can get their tracks available in their music catalogue.
But Snapchat has revealed that they will roll out a new feature that lets users create and add their own sounds to Snaps in the coming months. Stay tuned for our guide on how to add your tracks to Snapchat when the feature has been released.
