Instagram Finally Adds Music to Soundtrack Your Stories

This makes it possible for users to record lip sync clips and mini music videos - a feature that's been extremely popular on Musically.

Instagram has officially announced a new feature that allows users to add music to their stories from a database of thousands of tracks. The Facebook-owned company has said it will be adding more songs to its library every day. Tap that to bring up a library to search for the ideal song or browse by mood, genre or popularity.

Granted, if James re-signs, the Cavs - barring a near-miracle on draft night - won't be on the Golden State Warriors' level. The LeBron sweepstakes are getting interesting, and no one knows where the four time MVP will play next season.

In order to include music in your Stories, you'll have to tap to add a sticker to a photo or video in Stories to discover the new music icon. Before starting to record a video, users can swipe the new "Music" option on the camera screen right under the record button. You can search for a specific song or artist, or browse by genre, mood, and what's popular.

Unlike with YouTube, Instagram users have been playing copyrighted music in the background of their Stories without the fear of any negative consequences.
