Instagram may let you add music to your Stories soon

Easier Sharing To Instagram Stories

Wong also told TechCrunch that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone and created a sticker for it.

According to code found hidden within the Android version of the Instagram app it appears that you may soon have the option to add soundtracks for your Instagram Stories. However, Wong was unable to post a story with the music sticker.

The code, which was initially found by Ishan Agarwal, shows an unreleased search music feature hidden within the Instagram Stories system.

In the coming weeks, Instagram will also bring video chat to its platform and give friends a new way to spend time together - even when they aren't actually together. Additionally, the company is also testing a way to automatically detect a song you are listening to and display the artist and song title as just a visual label. Musical.ly clips are already being shared a lot on Instagram and adding this native music stickers feature could have an impact on Musical.ly's user base, as pointed out by 9To5Mac.

She reports that Instagram crashed when she tried to post anything using the latest feature, which is still full of glitches.

Facebook, Inc's (NASDAQ:FB) Instagram has designs on making its Stories feature really pop for users. It isn't clear where the music will come from, but it's possible that it could be music stores on your phone.

New "music stickers" will let Instagram will let users search for and add a song to posts, thanks to recent licensing deals with record labels and music publishers made by Facebook.

Instagram has so far declined to comment about the code and hidden feature. At Facebook's annual developer conference, F8 2018, Instagram announced third-party integration for its Stories feature, including Spotify for music streaming.

I haven't spotted the new payments feature yet, but reports suggest that some users in the U.S. and the United Kingdom have started seeing it on the app. The new native payments feature is now available through limited partners and businesses on Instagram. Though, not available for now, you will be able to make direct payments for things like movie tickets on the app.
