Instagram is no longer just a photo-sharing platform. Besides posting photos and videos, Instagram allows its users to include music to their stories and reels to step up their content.
Especially if you are running a business page, only posting a photo or a video is not enough to stand out in your audience’s feed and stories. The best way to give that extra touch to your content is to add tunes to it.
You can choose from an extensive selection of tunes from the music library within the Instagram app, or you can add music from other music streaming services, like Spotify.
Sharing music on Instagram Reels and Stories is easy with the built-in feature. However, unlike stories and reels, there’s no in-app Instagram feature that allows you to add music to your Instagram posts for now.
If you want to post a video with music on Instagram, you have to edit the video before posting it to your Instagram feed. After you’ve edited your video, you can upload it to your Instagram feed.
Luckily, there are many free-to-use and free-to-download video editing apps and tools with which you can add music to your videos. Below, we’ll cover some great apps that are easy to use but at the same time offer many editing options.
One of the most popular video editing apps with great features is the InShot app. You can download the app from the Google Play Store or App Store for free.
Once you have downloaded it to your phone:
Now you can post your video with the cool tunes directly to your Instagram feed.
Another video editing app you can use to add music to your Instagram post is Tempo. It offers cool filters and transition effects, including a music library with free, licensed music you can add to your videos.
Also, Tempo allows you to post your video with music to your Instagram feed directly in the app.
The only downside to Tempo is that you have to sign up for a subscription after the three-day trial to access its features for a weekly fee of $6.99.
But if you decide that it’s worth paying a small fee to have access to more advanced video editing tools, here’s how you can add music to your video using Tempo:
If you are looking for a free video editing app to add music to your video post, Add Background Music To Video is another helpful app with a self-explanatory name.
Although the Add Background Music To Video app doesn’t have an extensive library of songs to choose from, it is free to use. Also, it’s compatible with iTunes or any other library of MP3 files.
Once your video is saved, you can proceed to post it on Instagram.
There’s a workaround that allows you to post a video with music to your Instagram feed by sharing a music video you’ve created on TikTok.
TikTok is a great video-sharing app that has a massive library of licensed sounds and songs you can use to add to your video and share it on Instagram.
Also, you have the option to record a single video and shorter video snippets, or upload a video from your camera roll.
