How To Add Music To Your Instagram Stories

7 min read

Facebook just introduced the addition of music or soundtracks in your Instagram Stories. You can now add a soundtrack to your Instagram stories in the app to fit any moment or mood just to express how you are feeling. Instagram Stories is used by 400 million every day. Well, I guess this was Mark Zuckerberg’s master plan after all.


How to Add a Soundtrack or Music To Your Instagram Stories

  1. Tap to add a sticker to a photo or video in Stories (you’ll now see a music icon)
  2. Tap on it to open a library of thousands of songs you can search for a specific song.
  3. Browse by mood, genre or what’s popular and tap the play button to hear a preview.
  4. When the soundtrack is selected your song you can fast-forward and rewind through the track to choose the exact part that fits your story.
  5. You can also choose a song before capturing a video. When you open the camera, swipe to the new “Music” option under the record button. Search for a song, select the exact part you want, and record a video as the song plays in the background.


With this new addition to Instagram Stories, your friends will watch your story and hear the songs playing as they are viewing your photo or video and will be able to also see a sticker showing the song title and artist name.

Songs are been added to the music library each and every day. The music sticker is now available as part of Instagram version 51 in select countries, and the ability to choose a song before capturing video is available on iOS only, with Android coming soon.
