Instagram Adds New Music Feature

Popular video and photo sharing platform Instagram added a new feature, which will enable users to add licensed music tracks to the stories that they share with their friends and family.  

Users can directly add music from the app to the photos or video stories they share on Instagram. A statement given by Instagram says, "We’re introducing music in Instagram Stories. Now you can add a soundtrack to your story that fits any moment and helps you express how you’re feeling". The app already has music by renowned artists Bruno Mars, Demi Lovato and Maroon 5. The way to use this app is quite simple, before sharing a picture or video tap on the newly added music icon, and select your favourite song from the list of thousands of soundtracks. Once you choose the track you can rewind or fast-forward in order to choose the right part from your story.

This new feature is currently available in a few countries on iOS only and the app is working towards launching it in more countries.
