Facebook is now allowing gaming streamers to add copyrighted music in their videos. The social networking giant said it has partnered with music labels to bring a big catalog of popular music on Facebook Gaming.
Some of the top music labels that have joined Facebook Gaming are Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Kobalt Music Group, BMG publishing, and Merlin among others.
Streamers will now have access to old and new music across genres. The company added it has secured licenses that cover more than 90 countries.
The catalog will be available via Facebook’s Sound Collection and to all creators for free. Initially, it will be available to Facebook’s partnered creators but will be eventually rolled out to all gaming creators.
It is not available for long and edited gaming videos. Facebook pointed out that it cannot disclose which music it does not cover. To make things simpler for game streamers, it will notify streamers about the music which may violate copyright issues.

“You are free to play music from your preferred source; for example, your preferred subscription service or downloads from your personal music collection.
