Maroon 5 is reportedly allowing iPhone owners to use the band’s new single “Memories” as the soundtrack when they build mini-movies from images in the Photos app.

Apple calls all these collections Memories, so the connection is obvious.

How to make a ‘Memories’ memory

The iOS, macOS and iPadOS Photos applications all automatically create Memories, which Apple says are “chosen from the very best photos and videos in your library.” To see them, go to the Photos app then tap on the For You tab.

The Photos app automatically makes a movie out of each of these Memories. These can be edited, including the background music. When viewing one of the Memories, tap on it to reveal editing tools.

And a new option for the soundtrack, for a short time, is Maroon 5’s “Memories,” according to Billboard. The band even made its own Memory with the song playing in the background. Watch it now on Apple Music.

This option is only available on devices running iOS13/iPadOS 13. That said, “Memories” isn’t showing up when Cult of Mac tested this feature.
