Music is one of the most essential components of any project, advertising, or even any video ads for social media. The right soundtrack spices up an ordinary video, making it more exciting and immersive. For video creators, choosing the right soundtrack is a key to convey the intended message to viewers by using different music genres for different emotions. The right music for your video not only boosts the engagements but also builds a relationship of your brand with viewers. Video marketing will keep on going, and for marketers and advertisers, music videos are the best way to market themselves. But what if the music has copyright issues or the music on YouTube is not supported by other platforms like Facebook?
Use Sound Collection
You can use Sound Collection to add free music and sounds to the videos you create and upload to Facebook. You'll need to use your own video creation software to add the music and sounds to your videos. Sound Collection is only accessible from your computer.

Filter by genre, mood, length, vocals and more. Listen to different tracks and sound effects by pressing the play button.
Tech commentators have been quick to point out this has been a long time coming — both for creation and copyright purposes. TechCrunch says if FB teams up with some big record labels, videos will stop being taken down for breaching copyright, and the number of watches could increase hugely. Earlier this year, Facebook launched Watch , a new hub for original video in its app. Media companies and individuals creators frequently made videos with text on the screen so that users can have their sound off. And that makes creators happy. Earlier this year, our own research into Facebook revealed videos continue to be a key way to get those sought after engagement rates soaring. So any tool to make that easier, must be a bonus, right? And no.
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. These tracks and effects are owned by Facebook hence there are no hassles with copyright or paying the artists, as Facebook has taken care of that part and video creators are free to use them in their videos which can then be shared on Facebook or Instagram. Note that Facebook has only mentioned sharing of the videos using the Sound Collection audio on Facebook or Instagram. There is no explicit mention of YouTube or other video sharing platforms. Discover a mix of songs, vocals, noises, and instrumental tracks spanning genres like hip hop, pop, jazz, country, and more — and new tracks and effects will be added soon," said Facebook in the press release. Majority of the tracks are composed by indie artists.
