Canva terms


Audio tracks that can be added to video designs.

What is music in Canva?

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. Music in Canva refers to the audio tracks that users can add to their designs or presentations to enhance the overall experience. Canva offers a library of music tracks that users can browse and select from, covering a wide range of genres and moods.

The music feature in Canva is particularly useful for creating engaging video content or presentations. Users can search for music based on mood, genre, or duration, and then easily add it to their design. The platform also allows users to adjust the volume, start time, and end time of the music track to fit their design perfectly. This feature helps in making the content more dynamic and appealing to the audience.

How to add music to Canva presentation?

To add music to a Canva presentation, you first need to open your presentation in Canva. Once you have your presentation open, look for the "More" button on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on it and a drop-down menu will appear. From this menu, select "Music".

After clicking on "Music", you will be presented with a variety of music options to choose from. You can preview the music by clicking on the play button next to each track. Once you have found a track you like, click on it and it will be added to your presentation. You can adjust the volume, decide whether the music should play once or loop continuously, and choose when the music should start playing during your presentation. Remember to save your changes before exiting.

Is music in Canva free to use?

Yes, music in Canva is free to use. Canva offers a library of high-quality stock music tracks that users can incorporate into their designs. These tracks are available for free to all Canva users, and they can be used in a variety of projects, including presentations, videos, and social media posts.

However, it's important to note that while the music is free to use within Canva, usage rights may vary. Some tracks may require attribution or may have other restrictions on their use. Therefore, it's always a good idea to check the specific licensing agreement for each track before using it in a project.

Can I upload my own music to Canva?

Yes, you can upload your own music to Canva. Canva allows users to add their own audio files to their designs. This feature is particularly useful for creating videos or presentations with a personalized touch. You can upload MP3 files directly from your device and add them to your Canva designs.

However, it's important to note that you must have the necessary rights or permissions to any music you upload. This means you should either own the music or have a license to use it. Canva does not take responsibility for any copyright infringements, so it's crucial to ensure you have the legal right to use the music you upload.
