Snapchat is one of the last ‘story’ platforms to offer a music option, despite being the pioneer of stories. You can add music before or after filming your snap, choosing songs from a catalog of established artists. When users receive a snap with music, they can swipe up to view more information on the song. The sounds feature is currently exclusive to the iOS version of the app. 

Snapchat also has a feature in the works which allows users to create and add their own unique sounds to snaps.
