Finding trending audios on Facebook reels

There are several third party apps available on internet which can be used to find out trends for reels but we will discuss other ways too.

Explore facebook reels page

You can find what is trending on reels by exploring reels. You just have to open reels and scroll all reels manually and see which type of sounds have more views. This way you can make a guess about trends. 

It will not show you the exact number of plays because play count is not shown on this page. However, you will be able to see number of likes, shares and comments on it. You can open reels tab after tapping on the profile icon on Facebook which is located in the upper right corner. You will see “Reels” option under the Main Menu on that page.

Explore new hashtags

After that you can see which hashtags are commonly used in trending reels sounds. In general, most of the creators use 3 to 4 hashtags in a reel. But these hashtags must be related to the intent of the reel. Three hashtags in your reel mean that your reel is discoverable in further three topics. 


What you have to do is: Open reels on Facebook >> tap on searchbar >> type “#” and after that type hashtag for example #cuteness. Once you have found multiple hashtags then you can check the music used in the trending reels.

Just open the reels of that person and scroll all the reels to check which sound does he uses and what is the progress of different variations.

Get help from third party tools or websites

All of the above discussed methods were free from use of any third party app but you can also get help from sites or apps. I found that many sites and tools share ideas about trends which can also be helpful for you. I found an interesting app on playstore. You can check it out: trending viral music charts. However, in my opinion you should find trends yourself rather than depending on any tool.
