Facebook to Introduce Lip Sync Live Feature
Facebook announced it will start rolling out the feature on Tuesday but will make it more widely available soon. Users will be able to select a song to sing along to while they record a live video.
This is thanks to Facebook closing numerous deals with music companies to secure rights to certain songs. According to ‘Billboard,’ some of the tracks include Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” Drake’s “God’s Plan,” and Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle.” You will still be able to customize the video with masks and filters, and your friends will see the artist name and song title on the video.
“We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the music industry to create new ways for people to connect and express themselves through music across our family of apps.” – Tamara Hrivnak, Head of Music Business Development and Partnerships, in blog
