Part 2 How to Add a Profile Video On Facebook

The feature to make a video for your Facebook profile is currently only available on the mobile Facebook app, so you can't upload a profile video to Facebook from your computer. But the steps to make a profile video and set the video as your profile on the mobile Facebook app is pretty easy:

Step 1
Open up the Facebook app on your iPhone or Android device, click on your profile picture from the top-left of the screen, or access the "See your profile" option from the menu.
Step 2
Now, you'll see that your current profile picture has a camera icon next to it, simply click on the camera icon and then choose the Select Profile Video option (for Android) or click on Select Profile Picture or Video (for iOS).
Step 3
Choose the profile video you made before from your phone's camera roll; or you can shoot a new video as your FB profile directly!
Step 4
(Optional for those who shoot a new profile video) Click on the magic wand from the bottom-left corner to trim, crop, and edit your profile video to add some finishing touches to it!
Step 5
When you're finished, click "Use" in the upper right corner to set your video as your Facebook profile picture.
