How to Add Your Own Music to Snapchat Android

Do you want to add your favorite songs to your Snapchat stories on Android? Well, you’re in luck!

Snapchat now allows Android users to add their own music to their snaps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Update Snapchat

If you haven’t already, make sure you have the latest version of Snapchat installed on your Android device. Open the Google Play Store and search for “Snapchat.” If an update is available, tap on “Update” and wait for it to install.

Step 2: Choose a Music App

In order to add your own music to Snapchat, you’ll need a music app that is compatible with Snapchat. Some popular options include Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud. Make sure the app is installed on your device and that you have an active account.

Step 3: Play Music in the Background

To add music to your snaps, you’ll need to play it in the background while recording a video or taking a picture. Open the music app of your choice and select the song or playlist you want to use.

Note: Some music apps may require a premium subscription for certain features or playback options. Make sure you have an active subscription if necessary.

Option A: Snapping with Music Playing

  1. Open Snapchat and switch to camera mode by swiping right from the main screen.
  2. Start playing the desired song in your chosen music app.
  3. While the song is playing, press and hold the record button to record a video or tap on it for a quick picture.
  4. Release the record button when you’re done recording or taking a picture.
  5. Your snap with the added music will appear in the preview screen. You can now edit it, add filters, captions, or send it to your friends as usual.

Option B: Adding Music to Existing Snaps

  1. Open Snapchat and take a photo or record a video without any music playing in the background.
  2. Once you’ve captured your snap, tap on the music icon located at the top right corner of the screen.
  3. A list of compatible music apps will appear. Select your preferred app from the list.
  4. The selected music app will open, allowing you to choose a song or playlist.
  5. Select the desired song or playlist and start playing it.
  6. Your snap will automatically be updated with the chosen music.

Note: The music will only play for as long as your snap’s duration. If you want to add longer tracks, consider recording multiple snaps and stringing them together in your story.

Step 4: Share Your Musical Masterpiece

Once you’re satisfied with your snap and have added any desired edits or filters, you can share it with your friends. Simply tap on the blue arrow icon at the bottom right corner of the screen and select who you want to send it to. Alternatively, you can also add it to your Snapchat story for all of your friends to enjoy!

Congratulations! You’ve successfully added your own music to Snapchat on Android. Now you can express yourself and enhance your snaps with your favorite tunes. Have fun snapping!
