For those who are active on different social media platforms, you must have well known the feature of “story” - a post that is only visible briefly for 24 hours. Story, the format, made popular by Snapchat and Instagram, has been adopted by some mainstream social media and communication APP, such as Facebook and WhatsApp. We are seeing “story” everywhere as if it has taken over our smartphones.

Introduction to Snapchat Story

Snapchat is believed to be the first APP that created the “story”. The feature that it only exists briefly indeed fits in with Snapchat’s brand tone. On Snapchat, “Story” is a collection of images and short videos that can be overlaid optionally with added effects, but which disappears after 24 hours. You can view a “Story” in sequence either waiting out for a default play in order or advancing to the next manually. Snapchat presents the “Story” for the purpose of unfolding the user’s day, and you can add as many to stories as you can. “Story” has several types, you can not only do your own story but also stories with a group friend which is called “Group stories” which contains up to 1,000 snaps. You can also play with “Our Story”, which is a collection of Snaps from various users that appear in channels of Discover, search, or through the Snap Map. By adding your snaps to “Our Story”, you get a chance to be visible to the people who are not connected with Snapchat.

How to Add iTunes Music to Snapchat Story?

Story is not all about snapshots, it could be anything that counts as a “moment” in our daily life. A song that triggers emotion or feelings, a clip of the fallen leaves in autumn, a sound effect of stepping on snow. All these trivial moments make up the narrative of our life. So what if you want to share a moment of music that presents your inner world on Snapchat or send it to your friends? We are here to help. To share music to the Snapchat story doesn’t really follow the way of normal social sharing, which means you have to record the background music of a video and then post it. See the steps below for further instructions.

Step 1. Setting Up the Music

1.Open Apple music on your phone and find the song you want to feature in your snap story and tap the “pause” button. If the song automatically plays when you tap it, you have to pause it before recording so you don’t miss a part of the song.

Also, if you just want to share a specific part of the song just tap on the start of that part while the song is paused.

Step 2. Recording the Music

1.Open Snapchat APP, and play the music to be ready for recording. In order to switch between two APPs smoothly, you can take the shortcut of “Control/Notification center”.

On iPhone, swipe down from the top to call out the Control Center to see the song you just paused. Press “►” to play the song and then quickly go back to Snapchat.

On Android, swipe down from the top to reveal the Notification Center. You will see your song listed and press “►” to play the song before switching back to Snapchat.

2.Tap and hold the big circle icon to record a video. Snapchat will record the video with background music. The image in the video is up to you. Please note that part of the song could be missing as there is a gap between you switching the APPs.

3.To stop recording you just need to lift your finger from the big red circle button. Then the screen will start playing your video with the background music you just recorded. If you can’t hear any sound or music, try to tap on your volume control to unmute Snapchat to fix it.

Step 3. Sending the Snap

1.When you are satisfied with the music and video just recorded, tap the blue send arrow on the bottom right

2. You can tap on your friend’s name to send a Snap select multiple friends. Friends with a blue check will receive your snap.

3. Tap the white send arrow to send.

Tips for Adding iTunes Music to Snapchat

Seemingly, adding iTunes Music through recording via Snapchat is not that difficult, but just a bit complicated. This is because you have to switch between two APPs smoothly to make sure that they both work. Meanwhile, the shift of two Apps would create a gap in the music recording, which means there could be a part of the music missing. How long of the soundtracks would be missing? It really depends on how well and smoothly your mobile devices run. Therefore, we have a few tips here to help you to improve the job.

  • 1. Do not close Apple Music in the whole process otherwise the music won’t be recorded as the background music in Snapchat.
  • 2. It would be better and easier if you can work with two phones: One phone for Snapchat recording, the other one for playing Apple Music.
  • 3. Please remember to keep the volume of the music as loud as possible for a better recording effect.
  • 4. Please try to record the music in a quiet place so you can reduce the noise.
  • 5. If the noise is inevitably recorded, Leawo Video Converter is here to help. You can remove the noise with it before sending it to Snapchat.
  • 6. Mute the other APPs so you don’t get disturbed during recording.

Is it just me or does anyone find adding iTunes Music on Snapchat stories through video recording a bit clumsy? Yes, that’s true, because basically, you have to add music to Snapchat videos. In order to do so you have to switch between Snapchat and Apple Music, and then control the music playing just about right to make sure the part of the music is not missing. What if you are recording the full song? Then you have to hold the record button for at least three minutes with an awkward blank screen (or you can come up with something to match the music). It’s tiring and boring. Not to mention the noise of the environment that could completely ruin your music.
