It looks like Instagram could soon begin allowing users to add music to Stories.
Given that Facebook recently signed a music licensing deal with major labels like Warner, Universal and Sony, this move makes sense.
New code has been found in Instagram’s app that mentions a feature called “music stickers.” There’s also speculation that these stickers will allows users to search through a database of songs that can then be stuck to an Instagram Story in some way. This could be a fun way for users to add soundtracks to Stories, or share their favourite songs.
According to TechCrunch, Instagram is also testing a way to automatically detect a song that’s playing and then display the song as a visual label — kind of like what Shazam does but with a sharing twist.
