Stories song: new function for Instagram and Facebook arrives in Brazil | Social networks

The function of putting music on Instagram and Facebook Stories was officially released to Brazilian users on Tuesday (25). The feature is available for Android and iPhone (iOS) as a Music sticker in the social networking sticker selector, and adds soundtrack to photos and videos in ephemeral posts on both platforms.

Five Ways to Put Music on Instagram Stories

Launched in June 2018, the resource was, until then, restricted to other countries and to a select group of Brazilians who had early access. Too many users could only listen to music added by people outside the country, but not create their own posts with them. Now the function has gained additional features, such as displaying lyrics for singing in "karaok style" posts.

How to put music in Instagram Stories?

When it's time to put music in Stories with photo, just make the image, click on the Sticker icon (at the top of the screen), choose the item "Music" and choose the track you want to insert in the post. To add music to videos, on the Instagram Stories camera, slide the bottom bar until you reach "Music" and then choose the song. See the full tutorial on how to post with music.

You can choose a specific piece of song to highlight in the post and show an art with track and artist names. The user can also search the library for the genre, mood or popularity of the track. On Instagram, the post can also be accompanied by the lyrics of the song on the screen if it is available in the social network collection. You can use up to 15 seconds of music, which is the length limit of a Stories post.

The same procedure on Facebook. The social network also launched today two new music-related features:

  • Lip Sync Live, where the user voices a live song and can receive comments from friends; and
  • Profile Music, a new section on the user's home page where you can highlight a snippet of a favorite track, click-through lets you listen to a short snippet on the fly or access the full content on a streaming platform.
