Instagram has just announced that Instagram Stories has reached 400 million active users per day, and in addition, the company has announced the new "music" feature for Instagram Stories. How does this new feature work? When you tap an icon in Instagram Stories to add a sticker to your photo or video, a music icon appears. Clicking on this icon will give you access to a library of thousands of titles, and you can search for a specific title, search titles by mood, genre, or the currently most popular one.
Once you find If you're interested in a song, you can tap the play button to preview the song. Once you're satisfied with your selection, you can actually choose which part of the song you want to include in your Instagram story. With Instagram, you can also select a song before recording a video. Once you open the camera, select the new "Music" option located under the record button. Search for a song from there, choose a specific part of the desired song, then a video … a song plays in the background of your video. Now, of course, your friends will hear the song in the background as they watch your Instagram story (video), while also seeing a sticker showing them which song is playing and who the artist is
in addition to announcing the new "Music Instagram also said that it adds new songs to Instagram's music library every day, so you get more and more options over time. This new feature is currently running on iOS, but Instagram said it will soon come to Android, though we do not know exactly when. Instagram generally releases features for Android very soon after they have reached iOS. So you can expect it will hit Android devices in the coming weeks. It's also worth noting that Instagram has recently released a "Lite" version of their app if you're interested in trying it out.
