Good News For Music Lovers Of Instagram

Looking at the code, it seems there is an unreleased "Search Music" feature built inside the Instagram app, right beside the location and friend-mention sticker search options inside Instagram Stories. Some code has been discovered inside its Android app which suggests that Instagram might soon allow users to add music to their Stories. This follows Facebook striking licensing deals with large record labels.

TechCrunch was tipped by Ishan Agarwal who was already behind the revelations of the now released Focus Mode, video calling, and the upcoming scannable Nametags. It would give the feature a leg up on Snapchat Stories which is where Instagram got this feature from in the first place. Both features were eventually officially announced by Instagram.

While all we now have to go on is a few lines of code, the theory is that when users create a Story, they will be given the option to add some music, not unlike how they would add Stickers. These "music overlay stickers" can be searched using tabs for "Genres", "Moods", and "Trending".

Facebook has signed deals with Sony, Universal and Warner to provide the uninterrupted music service to its owned app, Instagram, according to recent reports.

This new feature would also help Instagram steal some thunder from popular lip-syncing app Musical.ly, which reportedly has 60 million users. If users could make sing-along videos on Instagram, they likely wouldn't need to use Musical.ly for the same goal.

Instagram, for their part, declined to comment. Instagram shall be integrated with Music in their stories in near future.
