New "Music Stickers" In The Works — Instagram

Instagram may soon offer a soundtrack for your Stories

Finally, Instagram will apparently add a calendar to the Stories Archive options, so users can see the archived posts in a calendar format, similar to how events are displayed in calendars. Wong also notes that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone, and created a sticker for it. The photo sharing app is also reportedly testing a feature to automatically detect the song the user is listening to and display the artist and song title as a "visual label".

After the platform was recently known to be working on a video calling feature for the platform, and quietly launching a payments integration, a new report now suggests "music stickers" being added to its Stories feature. It could also pose a threat to rival platforms and apps, but that of course depends on how well it takes off with Instagram users.

In the meantime, all you can do is expect better days ahead as an Instagram user; especially if the Stories feature is one of your favorites when using the app. Per the screenshot shared by TechCrunch, users will be able to choose from three differently categorised sections under the sticker.

The new features were uncovered by Ishan Agarwal, a 15-year-old tech enthusiast who has made his name uncovering hidden gems in Instagram's programming. The feature is located within the sticker tray that's present on the Instagram Stories editing page. It's very likely that music stickers will be addable to videos, but it's also possible that it could also be added to photos.

A teardown of the latest version of the Android Instagram app, performed by TechCrunch, casts more light on the matter. However, thanks to Facebook's numerous high-profile deals with various music publishers, such as Sony, Universal, and Warner, the feature may finally be rolled out to everyone in a much more fleshed-out form.

I haven't spotted the new payments feature yet, but reports suggest that some users in the U.S. and the United Kingdom have started seeing it on the app. Though, not available for now, you will be able to make direct payments for things like movie tickets on the app.
