Facebook Live is making some music moves!
Following new deals with major record labels, copyright issues for background music is hardly a problem now. So, the social network is introducing a fun new way to share your favorite tunes with its new lip sync feature.
We’ve all done it before — reached for our phone to record a video of us fake singing or rapping to our favorite track. With this new Facebook feature, currently in testing, music fans can choose from hundreds of songs and start their own lip sync broadcast.
According to reports, popular songs including “Havana” by Camila Cabello, “Welcome to The Jungle” by Guns N Roses, and “God’s Plan” by Drake are available through the new system. You can even co-stream with a friend and duet to your favorite jams.
To get started, go to: broadcast Live >> Lip Sync Live >> select a song >> mouth the words >> add filters & effects >> share!
Sounds simple enough, but will this really make people want to drop what they’re doing and lip sync for their Facebook friends?
Of course, this is just another example of Facebook copying another platform’s concept. Does this remind anyone else of a worse version of Musical.ly? Because it does to us.
