What Are Reels on Facebook

As one of the most popular social media platforms, Facebook provides users with flexibility in the types of posts available, supporting text, photos, videos, live broadcasts, Stories, Reels, links, etc. Among the video posts, Reels perform significantly better than regular video uploads.

Reels on Facebook are short-form videos up to 90 seconds long. On an Android phone or iPhone, you can create a Reel by recording clips using the app’s built-in camera or uploading videos and photos you’ve taken previously. Then, you can trim video, add music, apply effects, etc.

Additionally, you can create Facebook Reels on your computer by uploading videos, but there are no editing options other than trimming.

For the requirements of Facebook Reels, the recommended format is MP4, the recommended resolution is 1080P, the upload aspect ratio is 9:16, the recommended frame rate is between 24FPS and 60FPS, and the recommended codec is H.264 or H.265.

How to Add Music to Facebook Reels on PC/Mac

Unlike the Facebook mobile app, the Facebook desktop app or the Facebook website does not provide an audio library. When creating a Facebook Reel on your computer, there is no option to add music to your video. Therefore, you have to find the song and use a video editor to add it to the video before uploading it to Facebook Reels.

There are two things to note. First, your video will be muted in certain countries where Meta does not have the rights to your added music. Then, your video should not exceed 60 seconds when creating a Facebook Reel on your PC or Mac. If you upload a longer video, you have to trim it.

Where to Find Royalty Free Music for Facebook Reels

As we mentioned above, you need to use royalty free music or sound effects in your Reel, otherwise, it may be muted in some countries. Where to find audio for your Facebook Reels?

The Facebook (Meta) Sound Collection is the best place for you to discover and download royalty free music and sound effects for the videos you create and upload to Facebook. From this audio library, you can explore Facebook’s exclusive collection of songs and sound effects and use them with your business, creator, or personal accounts on Facebook, Instagram, and other apps from Meta.

Facebook Sound Collection

The Sound Collection can only be accessed from your computer, but you cannot add music or sounds to videos on this site. You have to download the song or sound first. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

Step 1. Log into Facebook in your browser and then go to the

Step 2. Browse the collection to find a song you like. Or, you can directly search by keywords, and filter these tracks by genre, mood, length, vocals, and tempos to discover the wanted song.

Step 3. Click the Download button to download a track. Once done, you’ll get a WAV file.

If you need to convert the downloaded WAV music file into the universal MP3 format, you can use MiniTool Video Converter, a free audio converter with no file size limit.
