Sometimes, words and pictures fail to define our personality. And when that happens, music comes to the rescue. There’s always a song that seems so relatable that you can include it in your Facebook bio if given a chance. Thankfully, that is possible. You can add your favorite music to your Facebook profile bio or story.
While you can add multiple songs to your profile, you can also pin a song that will be visible at the start of your profile. However, the music or the songs won’t auto-play when someone visits your profile. They will have to play the song manually. Let’s learn how to add a song to your Facebook profile and story.
How to Add Music to Your Facebook (FB) Profile
You can add multiple songs to your Facebook profile. However, the music feature is currently limited to the mobile apps (Android and iOS) of Facebook. It won’t be visible on the desktop version of Facebook.
Follow these steps to add a song to your Facebook (FB) profile bio from Android or iPhone:
Step 1: Open the Facebook app on your Android or iPhone.
Step 2: Tap on the profile icon at the top (Android) or bottom (iPhone) and tap on your name to go to your profile screen.
Step 3: Scroll down to the section where you see cards like Photos, Avatars, Life events, etc. Scroll or swipe left on these cards and tap on the Music card.
Step 4: A blank screen will open since you are using it for the first time. Tap on the Add (+) icon at the top.
Step 5: The song library will open. Use the search at the top to find the song of your choice. Tap on the Play button next to the song to preview it or tap on the song to select it. Then, go back to the previous screen and the selected song will show up. Tap on it to play.
Similarly, you can add more songs to your Facebook profile’s playlist. You can also pin a song to your profile as shown in the next section.
These songs will appear in the Music section of your Facebook profile when someone visits your profile. The songs will not autoplay. The user will have to tap on the song. Tapping on a song will play a sample (1 minute 30 seconds long) of the song. The listener can either add the song to their own profile or view the artist’s Facebook page by tapping on the three-dot icon.
How to Pin a Song on Facebook Profile

Step 1: Go to your Facebook profile screen and tap on the Music card to view your playlist.

How to Add Music to Facebook Story
To add music to Facebook stories, you will have to use the Music sticker. The music sticker plays a selected section of the song for 15 seconds if added to a picture or plain background. If the sticker is used on a video, the music will last for the duration of the video (less than 15 seconds).
Follow these steps to add a music card to your Facebook story on Android and iPhone:
Step 1: Open the Facebook app on your phone.
Step 2: Tap on the Create Story or Add to Story at the top of the home screen.
Step 3: Then tap on Music Card present at the top. You might have to swipe the cards to view all of them.
Or, select the photo on which you want to add music. Once you select the photo, tap on the Music option.
Step 4: In both cases, you will be taken to the Facebook song library screen. Here search and select the song that you want to add. Tap the song that you want to add or press the Play button to preview it.
Step 5: Facebook will put the music card on the picture or background and will automatically play the popular portion of the song. You can view other popular parts or the one with lyrics by tapping on the star above the slider. If you don’t like the auto-generated parts, use the scrollbar to move to your preferred part of the song. Or, tap on the card styles to cycle through various styles. Tap on Done.
Step 6: You will be taken to the story editing screen where you can modify the story by adding doodles, text, and stickers to modify your story.
Step 7: Tap on the Share button to add to your story.
