Instagram Introduces 'Music Sticker' Feature Allowing Users To Add Background Music To Their Stories
Instagram is now giving users the ability to add background music to Stories with a new Music Sticker feature. Announced by the popular social media platform in a recent blog post, you can add music to a photo or video you post to Stories by simply tapping the Music Sticker icon, available in the sticker tray.
You will then have access to a library of thousands of songs. You can search for a specific song or browse by mood or genre. Once you select your desired song, you can fast-forward or rewind it to the specific part of the song that you want to add as background music.
This new feature is a result of Facebook, the parent company of Instagram, striking licensing deals with major records labels such as Warner Brothers, Universal Music Group, and Sony/ATV.
