How to add Song or Music to Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories are simple to create, but if you want to make them truly engaging, you'll need to put some effort into it. Thankfully, Instagram provides a variety of features to assist you in making your stories as entertaining as possible.

Maybe you've got some amazing photos or videos, as well as some cool filters and stickers to spice it up, but your story is still missing one crucial element: music. Instagram adds new songs to their music library on a daily basis. People have been using this feature since Instagram offered the ability to add music to your stories, and now even reels. Instagram plays music from its own collection as well as from your favourite music streaming services such as Spotify, SoundCloud, and Shazam.

You've come to the right place if you want to put music in your Instagram Stories because we'll show you how to do it step by step. So, to know more, keep reading.

Step 1: On your Android or iOS device, open the Instagram app.

Step 2: Swipe left to access the Stories section.

Step 3: Take a picture or record a video, or choose existing media from your phone's gallery.

Step 4: When you've decided what you want to post, press the Sticker icon in the top right corner.

Step 5: You'll discover a variety of stickers there, including GIFs, location tags, and more. One of them is the Music sticker, which allows you to include music in your Instagram Stories. Choose the music sticker.

Step 6: After you've chosen the sticker, there are two sections: 'For You' for popular music and 'Browse' for new songs.

Step 7: Once you've selected the music which you want to add, it's time to make some changes.

Step 8: You have the option of displaying the music with lyrics (in four different font types) or using one of two music players. By picking the song bit, you can also select the specific part of the music which you want to add. Your Instagram Story can have up to 15 seconds of music.

Step 9: Once you've made all of your decisions, simply hit the 'Done' option in the top right corner, select the 'Send To' option, and voila! Your story has been posted. You can also share it with friends one at a time.

If you wish to add music to Instagram Stories without the sticker, reduce its size when making the adjustments and then drag it to the top of the screen till it disappears. This hides the sticker while also playing music in the background.
