Facebook has introduced a new feature to let you make your videos even more exciting and immersive. Instead of just using the ambient audio or no audio at all with your video, you will now get the option to add sound as well as free music to your videos. This is an additional step in the direction of making the Facebook platform more appealing to the video creators.
Facebook Sound Collection is the pool of high-quality audio tracks and sound effects from across the world. As these soundtracks are owned by Facebook there are no hassles with copyright or paying the artists. Tracks are free to use for video creators which can then be shared on Facebook or Instagram.
In Facebook Sound Collection you’ll find tracks from established composers and songwriters and a range of sound effects. You can find the mix of songs, vocals, noises, and instrumental tracks spanning genres like hip hop, pop, jazz, country, and more. You will also get the option to follow the artists behind the tracks and browse through music based on genre, mood, length, and vocals which can go well with your videos.
Sound Collection Dashboard
Facebook has divided dashboard into two parts Tracks and Sound Effects. The Sound Effects are interestingly named and you can also search for any specific effect that you may want. ‘Train entering a tunnel’ or ‘Page turns’ or any other real-life sound effect you may want. You can search the tracks by genres, moods, lengths and vocals. Most of the independent artists whose tracks are featured on this list, are linked to their Facebook pages, in case you want to follow someone. You can also download the tracks or sound effects if you so wish. The Facebook Sound Collections rollout has begun and in case you do not see it right away, you should be able to in a few days.
