How to Add Music to Your BeReal

By incorporating music into your BeReal posts, you can engage your audience more immersively. Music can enhance storytelling, whether amplifying the impact of a heartfelt story or creating an energetic vibe. With this understanding, let’s begin with the article. 

Things to Know Before Adding Music to BeReal

Below are a few essential things you should know and consider adding audio to BeReal:

1. Adding audio from a music streaming service like Spotify or Apple Music can vary depending on several factors, including geographical location and platform-specific restrictions. For example, if you’re on an Android device, you can only use the Spotify app, but you can use either Apple Music or the Spotify app on an iOS device to add songs to your BeReal posts.

2. To share the music you listen to while posting on BeReal, you must have a Spotify or Apple Music account. If you don’t already have an account, you need to create one. Having a premium account is not necessary; a free version will work well.

3. Unlike popular photo-sharing apps like Instagram, you cannot add music after taking a picture in BeReal. Therefore, it is important to play the music that aligns with the theme or mood of the BeReal post you intend to share.

These are some of the critical things you must consider before proceeding with the steps to add audio to your BeReal. Let’s begin with connecting the music app with the BeReal account; keep reading.
