Instagram updated the way the Music sticker works in Instagram Stories this week, so that the song’s lyrics will automatically appear on the screen as the music plays. You can choose from multiple lyrics styles to create the perfect sing-along post for your viewers. Our guide will show you how to choose between the different lyrics styles.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.
Step 1: Once you’ve taken or imported a photo or video into Stories, tap the sticker icon at the top of the screen.
Step 2: Tap the “Music” sticker.
Step 3: Tap the song you wish to add to your post. Note: By default, you’ll be shown popular songs. You can tap the “Moods” and “Genres” tabs near the top of the screen to browse songs based on moods or genres, or tap “Search music” at the top of the screen to search for a song manually.
Step 4: Swipe from right to left on the lyrics options near the bottom of the screen to switch to a different style. You can swipe back and forth until you find the style you want.
The screenshots below show two of the other styles that are available. Once you’ve selected the style you want to use, you can continue to edit your sticker (and your overall post) as normal.
