Instagram testing song lyrics as stickers in stories

13 May 2019 2

Fast-rising social media giant Instagram continues to grow and introduce new features and improvements. One of the very recent development is the testing of post reactions and the disabling of hashtag sharing. These features are under testing and we could probably see them in upcoming versions of the app.

Now in the latest development, Instagram is testing a very exciting feature for Instagram stories in the shape of music lyrics that show up along with a video, giving the story stickers a very powerful dimension. The feature was first spotted last month where a user shared his findings on his Twitter video. The demonstration displayed a sticker showcasing Rick Ashley’s song ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ with lyrics that displayed in a style along with a music video.


In case you’re wondering, the app introduced music feature to stories in last summer (though a lot of users haven't received that update as of yet), offering the users the ability to add background music to their stories along with their story content, offering customization with a specific clip.

Likewise, we earlier had features that also allowed to reply to questions with specific songs, question stickers to be used in live videos. Though its quite possible that you might be missing upon a lot of these features for which the only solution is to wait as most of these are sever side unlocks that would take time to drop down around where you live.

Which of these features is missing on your end? Let us know in the comment section below.
