According to reports, Instagram is working on a new music feature that will let you add “music stickers” to your Stories.
TechCrunch was tipped by Ishan Agarwal who was already behind the revelations of the now released Focus Mode, video calling, and the upcoming scannable Nametags. Once again, Ishan discovered the upcoming feature by looking through Instagram’s app code.
It is thought that the new music feature will allow users to add music to their Stories, using Stickers as they do for locations, hashtags, or GIFs.
Of course, these revelations come a day after it was announced that Instagram would start allowing third-party apps like Spotify and Soundcloud to share content directly in Stories.
The new “Music Stickers” will be powered by all the major licensing deals Facebook struck with music publishers over the past few months. One thing is for sure: other apps need to worry, as Facebook-backed Instagram is once again gearing up for more.
