  • Instagram Stories Announces Music Feature To Celebrate 400 Million Users

Following the launch of IGTV, as well as a new four-way video chat feature, the social media app is now introducing music to Stories. Tracks can be previewed before they're added; Once chosen, you can fast forward or rewind so the tune starts at the moment you choose. The feature users can now add music on to their photo or video stories directly from the app. This makes it possible for users to record lip sync clips and mini music videos - a feature that's been extremely popular on Musically. If you're into Instagram Stories, you'll now be able to add music to them if you own an iOS device. From there you can search for a song, select the part you want, and record a video as the song plays in the background.

The process of adding music on to your stories is quite simple and similar to Instagram's sticker feature.
