Snapchat is also testing the ability for users to create their own sounds and add them to Snaps.
Snapchat has announced the launch of Sounds, a new feature that allows Snapchatters on iOS in the Middle East and globally to add music to their Snaps (pre or post-capture) from a curated catalogue of music from emerging and established artists.
To celebrate the launch, Justin Bieber’s new track ‘Lonely’ featuring Benny Blanco, will be featured in Snapchat’s Sounds list from today, before his album officially drops on Friday.
Snapchatters will be able to create artistic Snaps, share them with their friends, and even save the link to download the song when it’s available on their favourite platform.
When viewing a Snap with music attached, users can swipe up to view the album art, song title, and name of the artist. A “Play This Song” link lets them listen to the full song on their favourite streaming platform, including Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud.
