Instagram may let you add music to your Stories soon

Credit https

Adding your favourite song as a sound track to an Instagram post could soon become a reality, thanks to a new feature found hidden in the site's Android app. The feature is located within the sticker tray that's present on the Instagram Stories editing page.

The other feature called music stickers shows up in the stickers section in Instagram Stories.

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.

'I am Trumpier than Trump,' boasts West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship
Like Trump, Blankenship has cast himself as a victim of the establishment and a rigged system. Senate and promote the president's agenda", Blankenship responded in a statement.

According to TechCrunch, Instagram is also testing a way to automatically detect a song that's playing and then display the song as a visual label - kind of like what Shazam does but with a sharing twist. 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. However, it could be a bigger threat to Musically, an app meant for lip syncing to music. Tapping on it further presents the "Search Music" option along with different tabs like Trending, Moods and Genres. That could be some major update when it eventually hit the respective app stores probably very soon as no exact date was quoted in the report. At Facebook's annual developer conference, F8 2018, Instagram announced third-party integration for its Stories feature, including Spotify for music streaming.

The product is still in its early development stage and it remains unclear as to how the feature will integrate with the existing services Instagram provides. How the system will function exactly, is not clear yet, but adding a Music Sticker to your video will likely play a clip from the song you've selected as background music to the video. Though, not available for now, you will be able to make direct payments for things like movie tickets on the app.

Instagram is adding a lot of new features to Stories, including the ability to let people post information from apps directly to their Instagram Stories, and the addition of Slow-Mo mode as well.
