Music has always played a significant role in advertising, whether it’s the catchy jingle or the emotional background music.

What is the Facebook Sound Collection?

In 2017, Facebook introduced its Sound Collection to help you improve your video ads.

The tool offers a wide range of audio tracks and sound effects that you can add to your videos. Facebook owns these clips. So, you can use them for free.

How do you use the Sound Collection for your Facebook content?

You can access Facebook’s Sound Collection via the Creator Studio. Tap on “Creative tools” in the menu on the left side of your screen and select “Sound Collection.”

The Sound Collection is divided into two categories: Tracks and Sound Effects. At the moment, there are 8,959 audio tracks and 1,741 sound effects in Facebook’s music library. But these numbers are growing, because Facebook adds more tracks to its collection from time to time.

In terms of audio tracks, Facebook offers a wide range of genres, such as folk, classical, blues, holiday, Middle Eastern, and Latin. You can also search for music with a certain mood, such as scary, dreamy, bright, groovy, happy, or romantic music. There is also the option to search for music by its length or by whether it has vocals or is instrumental.

The sound effects include categories like UI, Industry, Machinery, Tools & Offices, Water & Underwater, Footsteps, Alarms, Bells & Sirens, and Fabrics. You can also choose from different lengths of sounds.

In the Sound Collection, you can listen to every track and then download it to your computer to add to your videos.
