Facebook adds officially licensed music videos in the US starting this weekend

AlbertflexAlbertflex in August 01, 2020

Facebook today confirmed the company is adding officially licensed music videos across its platform exclusively in the U.S. The launch is in partnership with major companies like Sony Music Group, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Merlin, BMG, Kobalt and other independents record labels. 

This new update, which kicks off this weekend, will allow Facebook users to discover, watch and share music videos from a wide range of artists, including, for example, Anitta, Blake Shelton, Bob Marley, Diplo, Elton John, Jonas Brothers, Josh Groban, Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Marvin Gaye, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, and others.

The new feature if enabled, Facebook users will be able to find the official music videos on Facebook Watch, where a new Music tab has been created complete with categories and themed playlists and the experience will become more tailored to your preferences over time.

Like any other video on Facebook, users will be able Like, comment, and share the music videos to their profile and the music videos will also appear in their News Feed from the artists they are following.

Artists who are eligible for this feature are being informed they would soon need to toggle on a new permission that would allow Facebook to automatically add their music videos to their Page, where they could be discovered by fans on the Page’s Videos tab. Once enabled, the artists will be able to edit or remove their music videos at any given time.

However, if this setting was not enabled, Facebook will instead automatically generate a separate official music Page on the artist’s behalf, titled “[Artist Name] Official Music,” to enable discovery. That Page would be created and controlled by Facebook and accessible through Facebook Watch, though artists can later choose to opt-in to include their official videos on their own Page.

The feature will also allow Facebook users to follow their favorite artists, then receive the latest music video releases from those artists in their News Feed, as they go live. The “follow” option will be available not only on the artist’s Facebook Page, as before, but also directly from the music videos themselves.

By clicking through on the shared posts, fans will be directed to the artist’s Facebook Page, where they can discover more officialy licensed music videos of the artist. It will also provide several ways artists can connect with fans on Facebook, as the company had already rolled out tools that allowed artists to promote new releases with custom AR effects and Music Stickers, host live-streamed Q&As on Facebook Live and raise money for important causes through the donate button in Live and Stories.
