How to Record Video While Playing Music

Recording videos without stopping the music on your phone can be effortlessly done using Instagram, Snapchat and other third-party apps available for both Android & iOS devices.

There are also a few more apps available in the App store to help you do the same. Before going to them, let us see how we can achieve this using Instagram/Snapchat.

Play Music While Recording Video Using Snapchat

Press the “capture” button continuously as long as you record the video. The video will be recorded with the music played in the background. If you are not able to keep the button pressed for a long time in case the video is larger, then there is a way of recording it.

Without continuous pressing of the “capture” button, recording the video from Snapchat can be done only in iOS by utilizing the feature called “Assistive Touch”. The same method can be followed in Instagram also by removing your hand on the “capture” button.

Here’s the step by step procedure to record video while playing music on Snapchat.

  • First, open the Settings of Snapchat and go to General > Accessibility and select Assistive Touch option.
  • Toggle the Assistive Touch & press on “Create New Gesture” on the same screen.
  • Press on the screen and move your hand in either circular motion or in any other shape you like.
  • This gesture can be given a name by clicking on the Save button in the top right corner of the page.
  • Now, on the recording screen of the Snapchat, press on the Assistive Touch Select the “custom” option followed by the name of the new gesture video that you have created.
  • Soon after you select the new gesture video name, a circular icon will appear on the screen. You hold, drag and drop it on the capture button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Soon after you do the above step, the video starts recording on its own with the background music playing on your iPhone.
  • The video will record until the time span of the gesture that you have created gets completed. If you want to record a longer video, it is necessary for you to create a longer gesture than the video time.
  • After recording the video, click on the Save button available at the bottom of the screen.

Play Music While Recording Video Using Instagram

A similar way can be used to record a video on Instagram. You can record your video from the Instagram story or you can upload and post the video of your own, which can be used to play your desired music as its background.

Video can be recorded by long-tapping on the “Capture” button. The video can be later added with the accessories like adding text, drawing or adding filters. Finally, the save button can be clicked to save the recording.
