Instagram Stories Gain Support for Adding Soundtracks

by John_A

Instagram today updated its Stories feature with the ability to add a soundtrack for background music, with Instagram offering thousands of popular songs to choose from.

You can add music to Stories by tapping to add a sticker and then choosing the new “Music” sticker that’s available in the list alongside other stickers like Location, Mention, Hashtag, and more.

Tapping on the Music sticker opens up a library that includes thousands of songs, with search tools for finding a specific mood or genre, along with a list of what’s popular. You can press the play button to hear a preview of a song.

Once a song is selected, you can then fast forward and rewind to choose the exact part of the song that fits your story. Songs can also be chosen before taking a video by swiping to the new “Music” option located under the record button. From here, you can choose a song, select a portion of the song, and then record a video as the song plays.

Instagram Stories with songs attached will play the song and a sticker will be added with the song title and the artist name.

Along with music options in Instagram Stories, Instagram today also announced that Stories has 400 million daily active users.

Instagram says the music sticker is available in Instagram 51, which is the latest version of the Instagram app in the iOS App Store. [Direct Link]
