Adding Music to your Designs on Canva App: Easy Steps
Adding and editing audio on your designs when using the Canva Mobile app isn’t difficult.
You only need to familiarize what buttons you’ll push to achieve the effects you’d like to have.
In fact, you can easily flip an image on the Canva app with just 2 or 3 taps. The same is also true for adding music to your canva projects.
So, without further ado, let’s learn the basics of adding music on the Canva app.
Method 1: Adding Music from Canva’s Audio Gallery
Step 1: Create a new design file through the purple “+” icon on the lower right corner of the screen.
You can also open an existing design through the Designs button on the bottom menu bar.
Step 2: On the editor page, tap the “+” icon on the screen’s lower-left corner.
Continue swiping the toolbar that appears until you see the Audio button.
Step 3: Tap the Audio button to make the music gallery appear.
Scroll down until you see the music track you want to add to your design. Use of the search bar is another way to find a music track.
Step 4: Once you’ve found the audio track you wish to use, tap on it once. You will then see its title below the canvas.
Step 5: Edit the audio track you selected by tapping on the title. You will then see two editing options.
Adjust the track’s volume, tap the Volume button to make the slider appear.
Drag the slider to adjust the music’s volume. This option’s necessary if you’re planning to use the audio as background music to a video.
You can also trim or select what part of the audio track you want to be featured through the Adjust button.
Simply tap on it and drag across the soundbar until you find the part of the music for your design.
Step 6: To switch or change the music file you’re using, tap on the Replace button and head back to the Audio gallery to continue your search.
Or if you want to remove the music, press the Trash button.
Easy, right? You don’t have to be an expert at editing music files just to assign one for the design you’re working on.
But, what if you’re planning to use an original music piece? Is that possible?
Method 2: Adding Own Audio to your Canva Design or Project
Step 1: Press the “+” button on the lower left of your editor page.
Step 2: On the bottom menu bar, keep swiping until you see the Uploads tab. Tap it.
Step 3: On the Uploads gallery, press the Upload media button.
Step 4: Select the audio file from your device. Tap it to jumpstart the importing process.
Step 5: After successfully uploading the audio file to the Canva app, press it to add it to your design.
Then, edit the music accordingly by using the Adjust and Volume buttons mentioned earlier.
Step 6: Watch the preview of your design by tapping on the Play button icon on the menu.
If you’re satisfied with your work, you can save them on your device by tapping the Download button.
Select the MP4 file type and connect your social media account to Canva before you hit the Download button.
So neat, right?
The entire process might be a bit awkward at first, but, with continuous practice, you’ll eventually perfect the skill.
Then, you can finally create a professional-looking design with trendy music.
Frequently Asked Questions about How to Add Music on Canva App
Can I add music to my designs on the Canva app even if I’m a free account user?
You can still add music, though your choices are only limited to the Free audio you’ll find in the gallery. If you want to use the Pro audio tracks available, you need to pay for them first before saving them with your design.
How do you adjust the music’s duration on the Canva app?
Currently, there’s no option for you to adjust the duration of the music across the design. But, you can adjust the part featured in your design through the Adjust button. Just drag the colored section along the soundbar to select the part of the track where you want it to begin.
How long will the added music play on your design?
The length of time your music plays depends on the stickers, GIFs, or video length you incorporated into your design. If no such elements are added, then your music track plays for five seconds.
Is it possible for someone to file a copyright claim on the music you added through the Canva app?
Copyright infringement’s possible if you haven’t verified your audio before posting. The best way to avoid copyright claims is to connect your social media/video streaming account to Canva.
What will happen if I use the GIF file type instead of the MP4 format when saving my Canva designs with music added to them?
When you save your music-laden Canva designs as a GIF, you’ll still see the animations you added. But, the music won’t play as GIF only renders animations but not sound.
