So after years of reported discussions with the record labels, Facebook is launching video editing tool Sound Collection for inserting “songs, vocals, noises, and instrumental tracks spanning genres like hip hop, pop, jazz, country, and more” into Facebook and Instagram clips.
Sound Collection comes alongside a slew of other new resources for video makers following the launch of Facebook’s “Creator” app last month that caters to web influencers.
They include a new hub with educational materials related to 360 media production, a 360 camera loaner program, and a page featuring tools for 360 video editing.
The goal with the launches is to help video creators build and grow on Facebook, the company says.
Video creators using the service can also take advantage of new discovery tools that allow them to learn about the different artists, follow those they like, and browse the sounds by genre, mood, length and vocals.
Some of the debut tracks include those from artists like singer-songwriter Kiri Tse; Indian percussionist Jim Santi Owen; and guitarist and film composer Lyle Workman.
