Did you know that you can add music to Instagram Stories? With this new feature called Instagram Music, you can post your story with your favorite song banging on top of it. As a matter of fact, 60% of people who view Instagram Stories, do their swiping with audio on. That means a little common taste in music can result in new contacts and networks.
It is fairly easy to achieve, yet, Instagram Music is still not available for some countries around the globe. Unfortunately, these users will not able to enjoy this feature for now. However, the Instagram team is working hard to bring the feature everywhere in the world. As a temporary solution, they can use reliable third-parties to do that task.
So, let’s dive in and have a look at how you can add music on Instagram Stories.
How to Add a Song on Instagram Stories
- Open the official Instagram app and log in with your username and password.
