Instagram lets you add music and lyrics to Stories
You can choose songs from Instagram’s built-in music library
The feature is now available in the Middle East.
Instagram introduced the ability to add music to Stories back in 2018 but the feature was limited to some countries and not available for everyone. The company then expanded the feature in 2019 in India with a bunch of new soundtracks, including Punjabi and Bollywood. Now, after three years of wait, users in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Middle East and North African regions can add music to their Instagram and Facebook Stories.
If you are wondering how to use this feature on Instagram, then here's a quick step-by-step guide on how to do that. We have also done several other tutorials on Instagram, so make sure you check them out as well.
