Instagram Is Testing Adding Song Lyrics To Stories

This new feature is added to give Instagram an edge over its strong competitors like Snapchat and TikTok

Instagram is having a new Sticker feature tested for its platform, which will display the lyrics of the song in the background of Stories.

This function is still under development but Jane Manchun Wong discovered it last month. She demonstrated it by a short video with the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Ashley playing. There are lyrics of the song showing just like she said.

However, no one knows for sure in which region Instagram is testing the Sticker feature, at least for now.

In 2018, the platform allows users to add music to Stories alongside their posts, they can also customize the feature with certain clips. Back then, the platform announced that it would bring popular songs to its library for users to use. Then, there were tracks from famous singers like Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, and Demi Lovato. A few months ago, Instagram let its users reply to a comment using songs, countdowns, and live videos. This addition marks a milestone for the platform as it clocked 400 million users per day.

We can also choose a song go before their own video, which is a head-on competition to some lip-sync apps released lately. It works in a similar way to the sticker with songs. You pick the song in the Music option right below the record button. Then, you choose the part you want to play in the background and record the video as you wish.

With Snapchat trying to regain the spotlight and TikTok joining the equation with massive initial success, Instagram is obviously trying to make itself a more appealing tool for users to connect with the rest of the world.

Apart from the Lyrics function to accompany songs in Stories, the platform announced a huge turning point. It now houses more than 500 million users on a daily basis. This Lyrics Sticker will appear on both Android and iOS devices.
