USA: Social media giant Instagram has announced that the most exciting feature “Instagram Music” is now available for users in Pakistan. Earlier, this feature was unavailable for Pakistani users because the META had not acquired the music license for this region.
How does Instagram Music Works?
This feature will allow users to add different songs to their Instagram stories. Users in this region will not be able to add soundtracks and tunes to their stories from all over the world. This feature was introduced in 2018 as per the blog post by Instagram. Users can use this feature by going into the stories mode, tapping to add a sticker to a photo or video, from there users will see a music icon.
When you tap to add a sticker to a photo or video in Stories, you’ll now see a music icon. Tap on it to open a library of thousands of songs — you can search for a specific song, browse by mood, genre or what’s popular and tap the play button to hear a preview. When you’ve selected your song, you can fast-forward and rewind through the track to choose the exact part that fits your story.
Music Publishing Partnerships lead for the Asia Pacific & China ‘Sam Wong’ has announced the availability of this feature in Pakistan on social media. Sam said “Thanks to the Songwriters, Artists, Labels, Societies, and Publisher Partners for the support, use the hashtag #musiclagao to tag your stories with music.”
