How to add music in Instagram?

This new music feature is trending worldwide with Instagrammers dying to use it. No wonder since 60 percent of Instagram stories are played with the sound on. We will teach you how to do it

Though the music sticker feature is available on both iOS and Android phones, you need to first update your Instagram App to the latest version to get it if you don’t already have it.

If this doesn’t work, stop the App for a short while and afterwards, re-start it. If it also doesn’t work, then you should try uninstalling and re-installing it. If all this fails, then you’re better off adding your own music to the story or waiting for the music sticker feature to roll out to you.

Upon getting the music feature on your phone, you will have a couple of options to choose from as you opt to add music to your story. You can either decide to create the video first and then, go ahead to add music to it. Or select the song first and after, record the video to go along with it.

We will show you how to use both options, but first let’s see how you can add music to an Instagram story after recording the video. Here’s a quick overview of the steps:

1. Create a video or image post

2. Click on the sticker icon at the upper right corner of your phone

3. Tap the music icon

4. Find a suitable song

5. Select the part of the song that you like

6. Add that part to the Instagram story

7. Share the story.

To determine whether it’s the right track for your story, just click on the song to preview it. But if you already have a particular tune in mind, you can go ahead and browse for it by song, artist or album in the search bar at the top of your screen.

Next, play the song to select the exact part you want to add to your Instagram story. You can find that particular part by forwarding or rewinding the track on the time bar.

How to First Select the Song before Creating the Story

If you wish to select the song first before you create the story, click the camera icon at the upper right on your app or the “Your Story” below it to open a new screen. Then, click on the “Music” option at the bottom of your screen to get to the music library

From there, follow the same steps you used while selecting the song after first recording the video.

Pick a suitable song, choose the section you want for your story and then, go ahead to record the video while the music plays along in the background.

Hope it helps! :)
