To celebrate, the app is adding a feature that's likely to generate a lot of excitement among its Stories-loving users: the ability to add musical soundtracks to your posts. Also, the developer announced Music in Stories will be launched in 51 select countries, so not everyone will be able to use it.
Obviously, people who view your story will hear the song playing while they gawk at your photo or video. Once you click on it, it opens a library of thousands of songs.
Once you've selected a song, a slider tool lets you choose exactly which part of the track you want to play during your Story.
There's a few genres and moods to choose from, and a search feature for anything that's not included on the front page. On iOS, you can even choose a song before shooting photo or video by scrolling to the music option on the Instagram camera.
When you go to post your story, you'll click on the sticker icon where you'll now see an option for music. The novelty is already rolling out on iOS and is said to be on its way to Android "soon".
The feature is now available only in a few selected countries and Instagram is working towards launching the feature in more countries. The ability to choose a song before capturing video is now iOS only. The almost two-year-old feature now boasts 400 million daily users, the company announced on Thursday.
