The newly updated version of Snapchat has brought the music feature to compete with other social media platforms such as Instagram. Nonetheless, here’s what you can do if you can’t find your favorite song or music on the Snapchat music feature:

  • Open your preferred music app on your Android or iPhone, and play the track you like to add to your Snap. You can use any mainstream apps such as Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud, YouTube Music, etc., as long as the music can be played in the background.

Top Tip: Keep the track sound of your preferred app a bit down as Snapchat records the snap voices at high volume. If you also want to include your voice in the background, we suggest you keep your track volume at 30-50%.

  • Open Snapchat on your smartphone while the track is playing in the background. Now, navigate towards the record button on the middle down corner of the app, and hold the record until done.
