While it's not exactly new, as people have been adding music to the background of their stories with Spotify, the app is now making it much easier for users to add music to their stories with their new in-app feature. Tracks can be previewed before they're added; Once chosen, you can fast forward or rewind so the tune starts at the moment you choose. Tapping on it opens a library which has thousands of soundtracks where you can either browse or search for your favourite song.

The music sticker is available as part of Instagram version 51 on Android and iOS in select countries. But this was done by just playing a song out of the phone while capturing a photo or video.

If you needed more proof of social media turning our lives into reality shows, Instagram announced that you will now be able to soundtrack your Instagram Stories.
