Ever wanted to include music in your “Stories” but you couldn’t? Instagram has finally granted your wish.

The photo- and video-sharing app announced on Thursday that it has now included music in its “Stories.”


The feature may be seen when you tap to add a sticker in either your photo or video story. A music icon is included, which is home to a library of thousands of songs courtesy of Instagram. Users may search a specific song or browse by mood or genre.

The song may be previewed by tapping the play button. The specific track may either be fast-forwarded or rewinded to choose an exact part to play.


Users can also choose a song before taking a video. By opening the camera, swipe to the new “Music” option. You may search a song, and record a video as the song plays in the background.

The music sticker has been rolled out on Instagram’s latest update in select countries. Meanwhile, the “Music” option is currently available on iOS as of now. Android users will also enjoy the update soon.  /ra
