Adding a musical touch to Instagram posts has become a favorite among users looking to infuse their content with a bit of rhythm and showcase their musical preferences. For those feeling a tad uncertain about the process, worry not – here’s a step-by-step guide to help navigate through it.
To kick things off, choose a photo you’d like to share and hit the “Next” button. Next up, simply locate the music note icon situated at the top of the editing screen. Clicking on it will open Instagram’s extensive music library, featuring over 12,000 songs. Navigating the library is a breeze; you can scroll through the “For You” section, peruse your saved library, or use the search bar to find a specific song, artist, or album.
Feel free to play up to 90 seconds of your chosen song and fine-tune the segment you wish to feature in your post by sliding left or right. This easy customization adds a personal flair to your shared musical moment.
Originally a feature confined to Stories and Reels, Instagram broadened its music capabilities in 2022 to include image posts. Fast forward to August 2023, and the photo-sharing platform introduced music to carousels, allowing users to share multiple images in a single post. It’s worth noting, however, that as of now, Instagram has yet to extend music support to carousel posts containing videos.
Excitingly, there are whispers that the app is currently experimenting with integrating music into user profiles – a nostalgic nod to the Myspace era. So, stay tuned for even more ways to harmonize your Instagram experience!
