Instagram Stories can also be used to post music on the social network, in addition to photos and videos. There are at least five different ways to put songs in the platform stories, either with native functions, such as the music sticker, or through shortcut tricks made by users, when the application did not yet accept audio files. Learn all the ways to post music on the social network in the tutorial for smartphones with Android or iPhone (iOS).

The official and simplest way to add music to Stories using the sticker present in the app's emoji menu. Choose the song from an Instagram database, define the desired segment and position the object on the screen. The reference of the music will be superimposed on the photo, after posting on the network.

To make videos with a soundtrack, I need to open the integrated Instagram camera and shoot in Music mode, next to the Live option. Choose the song also from the collection offered by Instagram and set the time before you start recording. Then just place the sticker on the screen and share it with friends.

Spotify has an indirect way of posting music to Stories, through the streaming app itself. Open a currently playing track and access the menu using the three-point button. Then, tap Share and select Instagram Stories. The content will appear in the form of the shared title cover. You can move the element and use the editing tools before publishing.

To post videos without a sticker, in the middle of recording, you need to use an old trick. Before you start, open a video player, like Spotify or Deezer, and put a song on to play. Then, when you start recording the video, the sound in the background will serve as a soundtrack. Remember to increase the volume of the cell phone to get the best result. In addition to dispensing the sticker, this way expands the list of songs to choose from.

A similar trick can be done to share a Spotify song without using a sticker in the stories. Use the native iPhone screen recorder or an application like AZ Screen Recorder on Android to capture the actions on your smartphone with the album cover open. Again, make sure the volume is loud enough to be captured by the cell phone's microphone. When you finish the video, open Instagram and post the newly created material. Those who watch the Stories will see only the art of the still music, while the track plays in the background.
