After the GIFs, soon the music stickers will be the new novelty of Instagram Stories.
If there is an important feature missing from Instagram Stories is music. Fortunately, the social network already has an ace under the manga in this sense. So he has released TechCrunch after being informed by one of his readers about the hidden music icons found in the code of the application for Android.
As the media reports, the code displays a “Music Search” function next to the location and mention tags of a friend within Instagram Stories. These “Music overlay stickers” can be searched using the predefined category tabs such as “genres”, “moods” or “Trends”. That makes us suppose that the “music tags” would allow the search of songs to add to a publication.
Facebook began to test at the end of 2017 sound Collection, which allows to add sound effects and a very limited range of songs from non-popular artists to their videos. Since then, the platform has secured licensing agreements with Sony, Warner, Universal and European firms.
As a result, Instagram recently launched a tool that allows you to share songs from Spotify for videos or photos published in the app. The tool works for other third-party applications like Sound Cloud.
Although Instagram did not want to confirm the music stickers in the middle, he did affirm three other features that had already been detected by the same reader, Ishan Agarwal. This is the focus mode for taking portraits, the QR identification tags to follow people and video calls that officially debuted on the F8.
The Facebook-owned application has put all the meat on the grill since it began the year to launch new features and features in the social network of photographs par excellence. Including their own portrait mode, GIFs or surveys in Instagram Stories.
