How to add music to your Instagram feed posts?

Add music to instagram posts

Instagram is a popular social media platform among influencers, social media celebrities and pretty much everything that exists online. To support creators and brands on its platform, this social media platform has never backed down from implementing new features. On November 18th, 2021, Instagram announced a new feature, which allows users to add music to their Instagram post feeds directly from their smartphone. Here is how you can add music to your Instagram posts in the upcoming update. 

  • Upload your Feed photo.
  • Click on “Add Music”.
  • Search for specific songs in the “Search” field or browse for music in the “Trending” or “For You” sections of the prompt.
  • Select the song that you’d like to add to your photo.
  • You will be able to select the clip duration (similar to stories) and choose the length of time you’d like to include (up to X seconds).
  • Click “Done” and then “Share”.

Please note, this feature is not available for everyone right now. Instagram is testing the feature with a small percentage of Instagram’s global community. As per the official statement, Instagram will expand this feature to other regions based on users’ feedback in the beta test.
