Snapchat has finally launched the ability to add music to your photos and videos, but users are a little confused – find out exactly how to do it here.

Since its launch in 2011, Snapchat has long been one of the most popular messaging apps out there. However, over the years it became rivalled when Instagram introduced filters and stories.

One feature that Instagram Stories have always had that Snapchat users have longed for is the ability to add music to your stories. Now, in 2020 it’s finally here, but some people are a bit confused about how to find it.

How to add music to Snapchat 2020

The feature isn’t currently available for everyone, however, if your app has updated then this is how to add music to you Snapchats:

  • Open Snapchat and head to the camera screen.
  • In the top right-hand corner, you will see a bar with three symbols in it, the one you use to turn the screen, the icon that turns the flash on, and an arrow which leads you to more options.
  • However, in the new update, there will also be another symbol, a music note.
  • Click on this and you will be able to choose from a list of songs to add to your Snapchats.

What if you don’t have the music note symbol?

If you don’t see a music note symbol then don’t worry, Snapchat probably just hasn’t updated your app yet.

They only just launched the feature where you can add songs to your stories, and it hasn’t been applied to all accounts yet. It seems that Snapchat are slowly rolling out the update onto more devices, so if you can’t access it then you might just have to wait a little while.

Try checking if you can update Snapchat on the App Store. If no updates are available, just keep checking back every day and soon enough the feature should be available.

Which songs can you choose?

Unlike Instagram, there is currently no option to search a song that you want to add to your Snapchat.

Instead, there is only a small list of songs that you can scroll through and choose from.

Many users have been disappointed over this, but if the music feature proves to be popular then it seems likely that Snapchat will improve and expand it in the future.
