As short-length videos have taken over the Internet and become the key engagement factor of almost every social media platform, big companies are constantly looking for new ways to create updates and enhance these videos through the use of music and animation.
In addition, these constant feature updates should make social media platforms more accessible for users with different disabilities.
Such feature is Instagram’s music sticker in stories that enables users to apply music lyrics in their stories.
Although adding lyrics to videos is not a novelty in the social media world, some users might not realize that Instagram supports this feature.
To learn how to add lyrics to your Instagram stories, just keep on reading.
Editing music in Instagram stories doesn’t mean you can crop or change the lyrics tremendously. It means that you can choose how the lyrics will be displayed in your stories.
Additionally, you can tap on the play button and listen to a fragment of the song before adding it to your story. This way you can make sure it is the perfect song and lyrics playing in your Instagram story.
Once you publish the story your followers will be able to read and listen to the music that you have posted. The story will last for 24 hours just like usual.
If you are not able to share music in your stories, then it might be due to an older version of the Instagram app your phone has. In that case, all you have to do is update to the latest Instagram version. Another reason for the music sticker not showing may be because the feature is still not available in your country.
If you're a Spotify user, you can also share lyrics from Spotify. Just navigate to the song you want to share, scroll up to Spotify's real-time lyrics, select the section you want to share, and choose 'Share to Instagram Stories'. After doing so, the song along with the lyrics will be shared to your Instagram stories.
