Instagram 'Music Stickers' may soon let you share tunes with your Stories

We'll have to wait and see when the new feature gets introduced, but it's clear that Instagram has designs on keeping its users as engaged as possible with the platform.

Music Stickers will allow users to add a musical overlay to their story. However, Wong was unable to post a story with the music sticker.

The other feature called music stickers shows up in the stickers section in Instagram Stories.

The native payment feature was confirmed by a spokesperson of the Facebook-owned company who did not only confirm the availability of the new feature, but also added that in-app payments for booking appointments such as restaurants or salons is now live for a limited number of partners.

A new Instagram coding found in its Android app hints that Instagram is planning to add music to Stories. As of November 2017, Instagram Stories has been enjoying 300 million daily active users, a number that is much higher than Snapchat, which reported 191 million daily active users recently.

Instagram developing new "music stickers" feature that allows users to add music to Stories. Which means it doesn't use audio recognition like Shazam, but it searches music based on your apps.

Instagram did not confirm the feature but it did confirm the roll out of Focus mode for shooting portraits, QR-scannable Nametags for following people and video calling, which was announced at F8 last week. While the app was able to correctly detect the song she was listening to, the app supposedly crashed when she attempted to try out the new "music stickers" feature. Wong also notes that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone, and created a sticker for it. The code suggests that "music stickers" could be searched for genres, moods, or trending songs, then placed in videos and possibly even photos. Music Stickers can be filtered by "Genre", "Moods", and "Trending", so users will be able to find the ideal soundtrack for their Story. Instagram Stories now supports videos that are only 15 seconds long, and it is not clear how it will pick song for the story.
