Instagram now allows you to add a matching soundtrack to your Stories

You can now put music on Instagram Stories

With its latest new feature, which we discovered in a recent teardown, you'll be able to include a soundtrack in your Stories. Tracks can be previewed before they're added; Once chosen, you can fast forward or rewind so the tune starts at the moment you choose.

There's a few genres and moods to choose from, and a search feature for anything that's not included on the front page. Tapping on it opens a library which has thousands of soundtracks where you can either browse or search for your favourite song.

Music In Stories will be available in select countries, with a global rollout to follow in the future. You can download Instagram from the App Store for free. The new addition will allow people to add musical clips to the type of content they are already sharing in their stories. Additionally, the option to choose a song before capturing video is now only available on iOS platform, with Android rollout expected soon. A sticker will tell them the song title and artist name. For users, it's a compromise: you can't necessarily use the exact song you want, but you don't have to worry about your Story being taken down. While it'll be rolling out to iOS users now, the new music feature is "coming soon" for Android.

The feature is now available only in a few selected countries and Instagram is working towards launching the feature in more countries. Through that same sticker feature, you can now add a licensed soundtrack to your Instagram Stories post as part of a new update.
