We all love sharing our happy and fun moments with everyone we are connected with on our social media accounts. And, Instagram is the best social media application surpassing Facebook, in my opinion. I personally use Instagram more frequently and share my moments with all the people I am connected with. It is also a great platform that allows you o share what you are listening to in your mobile. You can even share your list of tracks in the Instagram stories and let the world know your music taste.
The Music Sticker is one of the best features of Instagram that lets you add music directly to your story. Moreover, this also lets you add a high-quality music track on your Instagram story. However, with a new update on June 6, Instagram has upped the feature of this already great feature, by allowing the users to add live song lyrics that will play along throughout the Instagram story.
As this feature is new, you might not be able to find any song of your liking in the library but, you can type the name of your favorite song and search for it within this feature. Moreover, this gives a fun and new look to your Instagram Story as you can watch the brilliantly synchronized lyrics running and flowing on your Instagram story.
You can check out the official tweet from the Instagram twitter handle;

According to a spokesperson from Instagram on an interview with the Tech Crunch stated;
Music can be a big part of expression on Instagram – between adding music to Stories, connecting with artists, sending song recs back-and-forth, there are lots of ways to connect with music on IG. Now, we’re building on our music features and introducing the ability to add lyrics when you add a song to your story.
How To Add Song Lyrics on Playing Music on Instagram Stories
Follow the below steps in order to use the newly added feature of adding lyrics on playing music on Instagram stories;
- Record or snap a story as you would do for a normal Instagram story.
- Now, tap the sticker button at the top of the display, and choose “Music” from the options.
- Then select the music you want to add to your story.
- This time you will see lyrics popping-up on your screen.
- You can control the slider to choose the duration of the song for which you want lyrics to be shown in the story.
- Now, choose any animation style of your choice from the options given.
- Lastly, press done and publish your customized Music story and share it among your followers.
This is a nice feature that could be useful if you want to use this as a karaoke story. Or you can create a slideshow of your favorite photos and add lyrics that define that particular moment. However, you need to search for the song that is available for lyrics support in Instagram as it is a new feature and it is expected to feature more lyrics for songs in the future. With some editing, placing the song at the right moment and creating a story with a creative mind can take your Instagram stories to the next level using this lyrics feature.
