How to add music to a video on android

Have you ever added music to a video post?  Adding music to a video is fun as it makes them powerful in giving out the message. It’s so unfortunate that the android devices we are using don’t have this inbuilt feature. That does not prevent android users from adding music to their videos.

We can testify that, a good YouTube video is determined by the background music.  Having good background music will change the mood of people watching the video.  Still wondering how your android device can add music to your video? Worry not; this article will take you through all legal steps to follow to be able to add the song of your choice as the video background music.

Since our android devices have no inbuilt feature to add music to a video, we need to access our Google Playstore to download the required apps. There are three methods you can use to add music to your video:

  1. Downloading apps from Playstore.
  2. Using Instagram stories.
  3. Using Snapchat.

We add music to our videos simply to attract viewer’s attention.
