Livestreaming has got easier with Facebook as they have recently announced an update to their music guidelines for gaming livestreamers.
This means that gamers will soon have access to a wider selection of tracks to use without copyright issues within their livestreams, however there are still going to be some restricted tracks that you will need the correct licenses to use.
Using music to create a “music listening experience” is still not allowed, a streamer’s voice and/or gameplay audio should be in the foreground.
This is currently only available for partnered creators, but they’re hoping to roll this out to all gaming creators soon. In the meantime, they suggest continuing to use Sound Collection for royalty-free music options.
