How to add your own music to Snapchat pictures

If you want to add your own music to Snapchat, it gets a little trickier. There is no built-in feature that will allow you to pull music from Spotify or Apple Music, but you can still use these apps to soundtrack your pictures with some moderate tinkering.

Follow these steps to add your own music to Snapchat:

  1. Open up either Apple Music or Spotify
  2. Choose the song you want in your Snapchat Snap or Story
  3. Pause the music you have selected
    1. Remember to pause it at the moment of the song you want in your Snap or Story
  4. Open Snapchat
  5. Play the song by going through Control Center (iOS) or Notification Center (Android)
  6. Record your video with the music playing in the background

Adding your own music will give your snaps a more personal touch, and with Snapchat steadily growing its Featured Sounds library, you should be able to find a song you like in its collection.
