At last Instagram gets the possibility of putting music to Stories. Thanks to Instagram Music we can decorate any of our Stories with the soundtrack we want, thanks to an extensive catalog of songs that Instagram has incorporated.

How to use Instagram Stories Share music feature:

First of all, logically, install Instagram on your phone and have an account in the social network. With an email, it is enough to start putting pictures and create the first Stories. Once you have it installed (remember that the application, even if it is free, contains ads. inside).

Let’s start by making a story as always, that is, by sliding your finger to the right of the screen or clicking on the camera icon. Take a picture and slide up the screen, look for the ‘Questions’ sticker. When you have seen it, click on it and the little window will appear to ask a question. If you notice you will see a musical note icon. Press at it that moment, in the drawer of the question you can read ‘What song should I listen to?’. You can choose the color we want for the question by pressing the little button that you will see at the top of the screen. You can also change the question, editing it, in case you want to refine one question more. Next, press-ready, send the story and, now, wait for the answers to be sent.

If you want to see the recommendations, you must go to our story by clicking on the top icon of our picture, go to the story where it asked for recommendations and slide it up with the finger. All the proposals that your Instagram friends will have sent will appear on a carousel. If we want to answer them back, click on ‘Reply’ and ‘Share reply’. The answer may contain a video of you while the song is playing. In addition, you can choose which piece of the song you want to share in the story by sliding the horizontal bar. If you let the default extract sound, it will listen to the refrain or the most recognizable part of the song.
