Instagram launches Music In Stories feature

Instagram has announced the launch of a new feature, Music In Instagram Stories. 

The feature will enable users to add a soundtrack to their photo or video on Instagram Stories, which is now used by more than 400 million people daily.

People can search for a specific song, browse by mood, genre or what's popular, and fast-forward and rewind through the track to choose the exact part that fits their story.

When friends see the story, the song will play automatically. They'll also see a tappable sticker with the song title and artist name.

Music In Stories will be available in select countries, with a global rollout to follow in the future.

Instagram recently increased the video time limit from one minute to up to an hour for users with large followings.
