Introducing Instagram Music Stories

by Garrett Gomez in Announcements July 03, 2018

Instagram just got cooler. Now your fans can add your music to their photos and videos, creating a soundtrack to their story. By adding music to stories, Instagram has made it easier for your fans to add your music to photos and videos shared to Stories.

How it Works

After taking a photo or video in the Stories camera or uploading from the gallery, tap the sticker icon in the top right corner and select the music icon. Then, search and select a specific song.

You can browse by mood, genre, or most popular. Use the scrubber to choose which part of the song best captures your moment. When the story is viewed, you’ll see a sticker with song title and artist name. If you’re adding the music pre-capture, then select the ‘Music’ format, and search for a song the same way mentioned prior.
