Facebook has decided to no longer offer the audio recognition service to its customers. By the end of September 2016 the audio recognition service will no longer be available on any iOS or Android devices.
Facebook audio recognition feature makes it easy for Facebook users to share which song they’re listening to with their friends. When writing a status update, Facebook users who choose to turn on the audio recognition feature will be able to use their phone’s microphone to hear what song is playing. If the audio recognition finds a match, then Facebook users can choose to add the song to a post. The Facebook post will include the song name, cover art and artist name.
Important : Facebook is making the audio recognition feature available on iOS and Android in the US over the coming months, so you may not see the feature yet on your own Facebook account.
In order to make your music accessible to the Facebook audio recognition feature select Facebook on the TuneCore Artist Services page . Add Facebook one-time, with the cost based on your current number of releases active with TuneCore Music Distribution. After you add Facebook, then whenever you release more music with TuneCore, we’ll send your new music automatically to Facebook, at no additional cost.
Please note, ringtones will not be counted towards the number of releases you have in your account and will not be delivered to the Facebook audio recognition feature. Also, this service is not a store, and it does not upload your music to your personal or Artist Facebook page.
It can take 1-2 weeks for content to become available in Facebook's audio recognition feature.
