Add Music to Snapchat Stories and Snaps

Snapchat has become one of the most popular mobile messaging applications people use to share photos, videos, text and drawings. The app is absolutely free to download and use. It gained massive popularity in a very short time, especially among young people.

Using Snapchat, you can share stories and send snaps to your friends and family. A snap is a photo or video people send to each other on Snapchat. Videos in a snap can be 10 seconds, and every snap is deleted once all recipients have viewed them. But if you add a snap to your story, they will disappear after 24 hours.

Once you click a photo or video to send as a snap, you can edit that snap using various filters, texts, stickers, animojis, etc. You can also add music to your snaps and stories easily using the app’s sound feature. It allows you to create an audio background for every image or video you create and want to send as a snap. Keep reading this post to learn how to add music to Snapchat stories and snaps.
