How to Add Music To Your Android Videos Without a Computer

Since your Android devices have turned into a mini computer, you use it for just about anything. You use to keep your life organized, as an alarm and even to record your videos. The videos you record on your Android device could have the best resolution, but do you get that feeling that it´s missing something?

Watching the video of your new puppy jump around is great and all, but wouldn´t it be better if you could some music to it? Not just add some music but also some text as well?  Those features could give your Android videos that something they were missing.

The blue-ish bar at the bottom is to edit the video. By moving the left side, you decide when you want the video to start, and the other end is where you want the video to end. On top of the bar, you can decide what format you want the video to be in; there are three to choose from. Once you´ve done that, tap on the check mark.

At the bottom, you are going to see all the editing tools you can choose from. You can either Trim, Fit, Add a Blurry background, Add Stickers, Text, Color background, Rotate flip or add music. I would recommend adding a recycling bin to your Android device before creating your videos. You never know when you might accidentally erase it and this way, you can easily recover your deleted video.
