The camera is one of the most exciting components of a mobile gadget. With its high-quality imaging, you can capture significant moments every day. Moreover, it allows you to produce content for your social media accounts and channels.
Videos are a popular type of web content. They come in different formats—tutorials, informative, diaries, and music videos. Almost all video formats incorporate music to set the mood of the entire material.
Given the multifunction character of mobile gadgets, you may have wondered how to play music while recording. Let’s find out the answer moving on.
Android And iOS Gadgets
By default, most Android and iOS gadgets disable camera functions when you switch to other modes or open other apps. With this, you cannot record video while playing music on the same device.
However, there are some models that will afford you this. The newest iPhone model this year has a new camera mode called QuickTake. This app will allow you to record video even when switching to other modes like hitting the play button on your music player. The music will be recorded while you record footage.
There are also other Android devices with this kind of feature.
Instagram And Snapchat
You can use these social media apps to play music and record video simultaneously. You only need to open the app, click on the camera feature, and hold the capture button while playing music on your phone. The music you are playing on your phone will be captured as you record the view.
Publish or save your recorded video to your liking.
There are downloadable apps that will allow you to record videos and play music at the same time. Some apps offer a free trial for a specific time frame. However, your options might be limited in these free versions. If you are willing to spend money to produce content or just to play music while recording, then go ahead.
Here are two mobile apps that will help you on how to keep music playing while recording.
