No more of that "recording your car radio" stuff - let's get integrated.
According to Billboard, Instagram is rolling out music functions in their Instagram Stories, in which you will be able to attach a song to the story you are posting as a sticker.
"After scrolling through the library and choosing a song, users can pinpoint the exact section of the track they want played on their story by fast-forwarding or rewinding. In addition, on an iOS device, it will be possible to choose the song before recording the story as well. The track title and artist will appear on the story much like a sticker or a tagged account and will be tappable -- meaning that viewers of the story will be able to click on the track and learn more."
How, you may ask? Well, they are partnering up with Spotify as part of the integration for it, but it is also noted that you will be able to scan through the library offered to you through the app. That probably means there won't be a huge selection at first, but once they add Spotify in as an integration, we're sure that library will expand rapidly.
NEW @INSTAGRAM FEATURE ALERT: You can now add music in your Insta Story within the app. When you tap to add a sticker to a photo or video in Stories, you'll now see a new music icon. Tap on it to open a library of thousands of songs. https://t.co/32dn7lGwEi
Either way, there's gonna be a lot of people looking to add their jams to their stories!
