The sharing music to your Instagram stories feature was originally introduced in 2018, and Instagram users loved it since it allows them to add music and make their photo/video stories much more interesting.
Instagram stickers are widely loved, and not only the music sticker, the polls, ‘Add Yours’, questions, and quizzes are used by Instagrammers on a daily basis.
Regarding the music sticker, as amazing as it is, at times it ruins the aesthetic of the photo or video posted on your story, since the sticker shows up.
However, Instagrammers have found a workaround to getting music on your story, while the sticker is hidden.
Therefore, if you’re trying to post to your story without having to show the sticker, we have the perfect solution for you.
In the steps below, we’ll show you how to add music to your Instagram story with and without the sticker, as well as some other methods on how to post music on Instagram.
Even though there are many ways to post music to Instagram stories, the easiest way is by using Instagram’s sticker feature.
In the steps below, we’ll teach you how to add a song to your Instagram Story both with and without the sticker.
Note: After adjusting the song, you can edit the ‘Music’ sticker by tapping on it, and different sticker styles will show up, including the lyrics of the song you’ve chosen (if there are any available).
These are all the steps to adding music to your Instagram story with the ‘Music’ icon included. Below, we will explain how to get rid of the sticker.
To get rid of the sticker on Instagram when posting a story, you’ll need to do it with a workaround.
Besides for using Instagram’s sticker, you can post music to your Story by sharing for third-party apps such as Apple Music, or Spotify.
Both platforms have features that allow users to post songs, playlists, and even albums to their Instagram Stories.
To share, follow these steps:
If you’re unable to find the ‘Music’ sticker, you should try updating your Instagram app. If your Instagram app is running on an older version, and the app hasn’t been updated, this is why you might be unable to see the ‘Music’ sticker.
As we mentioned in the steps below, you need to make the sticker icon smaller, and move it all to the end of the screen to make it disappear. The music will still play in the background.
Select a photo or video you want to share to your Instagram Story, and swipe up on the screen. Click on the ‘Music’ icon, and select the song you want to add.
