Instagram Stories Announces Music Feature To Celebrate 400 Million Users

Instagram has introduced a new feature where users can add licensed soundtracks to their stories.

The process of adding music on to your stories is quite simple and similar to Instagram's sticker feature. Also, the developer announced Music in Stories will be launched in 51 select countries, so not everyone will be able to use it.

When friends see the story, the song will play automatically.

Instagram included some filters that will help you choose the right music for your Stories, so you'll be able to search by mood, genre or what's popular.

Once you select a song, you can preview it to make sure it's the flawless song for your 'gram's story. But this was done by just playing a song out of the phone while capturing a photo or video.

Another day, another new feature addition to Instagram. A sticker will tell them the song title and artist name.

When the feature reaches users, they will find a new Music mode that can be found under the in-app camera shutter button. The ability to choose a song before capturing video is now iOS only. The novelty is already rolling out on iOS and is said to be on its way to Android "soon". Once selected, users again can search through Instagram's catalog of "thousands of songs" which includes most of today's popular hits and add a section of the song to the photo or video. Additionally, the feature is now only in select countries.
