How to Choose the Best Songs to Add to BeReal

Tastes and Preferences

People have varying tastes and preferences when it comes to music. It could be that you love fast-paced or slow-paced music. Luckily, Spotify and Apple Music catalogs have all types of songs. 

Music Genre

The most popular music genres include hip-hop, jazz, blues, rock, pop, classical, and country. Hence, you can select the genres that represent the unique energy levels and styles you’re looking for. 

Artist Bios

Maybe you aren’t familiar with many music artists and don’t know which ones your BeReal audience likes. If you’re in this situation, consider reading artist bios online. Select the bios that seem to capture the attention of many people and search for their songs on Spotify or Apple Music. Add the songs you like to BeReal. 

Sound Quality

Listen to a song before importing it to BeReal from your favorite streaming account. Check a song’s ratings and reviews from users and experts before adding it to BeReal. That way, you can give your fans the best-quality soundtracks.

Things to Note Before Adding Music to BeReal App

Before adding music to the BeReal app, consider the following: 

  • Only residents of Canada, the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, and Australia can add music to their BeReal apps for now. BeReal will continue making the music feature available to other global regions. 
  • Choose at least one streaming service between Apple Music and Spotify. However, consider that you can only choose Spotify for your Android device. If you have an iOS device, you can choose Spotify or Apple Music. 
  • If you want to add the song you are currently hearing to a BeReal post, you should have an active account with either Apple Music or Spotify. Create an account first if you’re new to these music streaming services. 
  • Ensure your songs match the themes of your BeReal posts to engage your audience more deeply. 
  • Connect the BeReal app with your preferred streaming account. Learn more about this below. 


Can one alter an already posted song in their BeReal app?

BeReal users have only two minutes to prepare and submit a post. Once it goes live, you can’t edit it or the song within it. Thus, match a song with the theme of your post before tapping the “Send” button.

Is it possible to add many songs to my BeReal app at once?

You can only add one song at a time to every new post. To share more songs from your Spotify or Apple Music account, send a new BeReal post daily. 

Can I find a BeReal app just for music?

You can only use the present BeReal app as there is no clone yet. Connect your BeReal app to Spotify or Apple Music since these are the only supported streaming sites. Use them to add music to the app. 

Is there a BeReal alternative that accepts only music?

Yes, most people opt for the Kiwi app as it lets them share favorite songs the same way they do photos on BeReal. If you’re an iOS device user, download Kiwi from Apple’s App Store and use it. Android users are still on the waiting list and should stay on the lookout for when their app version emerges.
