Instagram users who add any of the songs that parent company Facebook has licensing deals for to their Stories via the Music sticker can now add lyrics for some of them, as well.

When creating Stories, Instagrammers can browse through the photo- and video-sharing network’s library of songs and choose one that best fits the context of their posts.

If lyrics are available for the song that is selected, they will automatically pop up, and they can be customized by tapping on them to change the animation and text style.

Billie Eilish is one of the artists for which lyrics are available on Instagram.

The feature began rolling out Thursday in regions where Instagram’s music library is currently available.
