After launching a standalone app and proprietary web destination for video creators last month, Facebook is unveiling two key tools for this set: a library of thousands of free audio tracks and sound effects dubbed Sound Collection, and a so-called 360 Community Page, which will serve as an educational hub for 360° video creation.

Sound Collection will comprise tracks from established composers and songwriters — including Kiri TseJim Santi Owen, and Lyle Workman — as well as sound effects, noises, and instrumental tracks spanning all genres, the company shared in a blog post. Facebook owns the songs and sounds in the collection, and they will be free and clear for creators to use across Facebook and Instagram. Creators will also be able to follow different artists within Sound Collection to discover new tracks, and browse the entire library by genre, mood, length, and vocals to find the perfect fit.

“We want to help creators of all kinds bring people together around their passions on Facebook,” said VP of product Fidji Simo, who added that the company will continue to build the collection over time. “To do this, we need to build tools designed specifically for them.”
