Facebook test function for adding music to photos and videos




Facebook will test a function to add music to images in the news overview or Stories on the social network. That works through a sticker on the photo that shows the artist and the title, the company mentions.

The test starts next week with a limited number of people worldwide, Facebook says to Engadget . Those users get the option to see a music sticker when uploading. After choosing it, they get the choice from a number of songs. Then the testers select the correct part of the song and sit with the photo or video.

Facebook does not say how many people can test the function, but mentions that it is a limited number. The social network has a collaboration with record companies Warner, Universal and Sony to use a collection of songs. The function is called Lip Sync Live. Such a feature also announced Facebook in May, but then it would only come in Stories. It is now clear that the test is also taking place in the newsfeed from Facebook.
