What is common in Facebook and Instagram stories is unfortunately still missing in WhatsApp status: the function of adding any music to the stories. All that has been possible so far is sharing music links from corresponding streaming apps. For now, however, you can use a little trick to share music in the status. In this article we explain how this works and what you have to pay attention to.
This is how you add music to your Whatsapp status
First of all, let’s point out that the trick will only work with videos that you are currently recording. You can use it to record video clips, photos or plain text that you have already recorded
set the scene musically.
What you need is Whatsapp and a streaming app such as Spotify. So you don’t need to have the songs you want saved on your smartphone. Then follow the steps below to add the music you want to your video status:
This trick only works if the background music is played through the loudspeakers of the smartphone and not through headphones (because the microphone then does not register any music for recording).
You should also set the music loud enough to block out any ambient noise. This form of video recording is accordingly unsuitable for particularly high ambient noise levels (wind, traffic) or in public areas (doctor’s offices, public transport) where discretion prevails.
