The meta-owned photo sharing and video sharing platform, Instagram, is introducing a music-driven experience for its enthusiastic audience. With this new feature, users will now be able to add music to their feed posts. Moreover, Instagram rolls out this feature in a few parts of the world like India, Turkey, and Brazil.
Every user must be familiar with adding music to their stories and reel videos. But now the company has broken all the limitations and allows music lovers to flaunt their pictures with suitable music.
Adding music to the feed posts is similar that how you add music to your Instagram stories and reel videos. Simply, they have to browse their favorite or suitable music from various music clips in the “Trending” or “For You” section or can search for any specific song.
Once, the music has been selected, now users have to complete the final step by selecting the clip duration and sharing it on their profile feed. It is as simple as what you have been doing in your stories and reels.
Once you have finished uploading, the name of the music will appear on the header of the post. If a user clicks on it, he/she will directly land on an audio page that shows all the posts that use the same song.
