Now you can add music and lyrics on Facebook Stories

Facebook expands its Lip Sync Live feature to more profiles worldwide.

Facebook is coming for Tik Tok, that ubiquitous social media app where people make videos of themselves lip-syncing to popular songs with effects and all sorts of music video-like visual features.

Now those using Facebook Stories can have their own music video experience. Starting today, users can add a song to photos and videos on Facebook Stories. 

First, choose a photo or video. Then click on the Sticker icon and select Music. Find a song to add with the search feature. Then add the Music sticker to your story.

Facebook also recommends that your add other stickers and effects to give the video more pizzazz. 

The social media giant is also announced that it is expanding a feature called Lip Sync Live to all profiles globally. It's a feature that lets you record yourself singing along to popular tunes complete with the backing track and then can share the clip on Facebook Stories.

Lip Sync Live will come with an on-screen lyrics features for those who want to see the words to the song they are singing. Currently, lyrics are available for songs like Dua Lipa's New Rules, Khalid's Better and Girls Like You by Maroon 5. We are hoping that Facebook will add the lyrics for songs like Blue by Eiffel 65.

Artistes and other content creators can also use the Lip Sync Live feature to connect with fans on their Pages. 

And there's more.

Facebook said it will soon launch a new feature to let users add music to their profiles.

The song will be shown on your profile with a cover art. When your friends choose to play the song, they will hear a preview and see a clip with photos of the artiste(s). Friends can then choose to add the song to their own profile or check out the artiste's Facebook Page. 

You can also use this upcoming feature as a new passive-aggresive way to let friends know how you're feeling but don't want to talk about it.
