New Instagram code reveals 'music stickers' feature for Stories

Wednesday, 09 May, 2018

Wong also told TechCrunch that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone and created a sticker for it.

There's no word on how exactly does this feature works, but it's possible that users will be able to pick a song and add it as a sticker to their Stories that would allow the people watching those Stories to play it. The feature is located within the sticker tray that's present on the Instagram Stories editing page.

After quietly launching payments integration for Instagram, the service might soon introduce "music stickers" to its Stories feature.

In the coming weeks, Instagram will also bring video chat to its platform and give friends a new way to spend time together - even when they aren't actually together.

Tech2 reached out to Instagram to know more about the feature, but they declined to comment.

The in-app payments feature will enable you to register your debit or credit card as part of your profile. This is new feature will compete with lip syncing app Musically and Snapchat as well. The feature will allow you to search and add music clips to your stories. There will be a trending section, with songs that are most popular among the users, another section based on the mood and a third based on genre.

I haven't spotted the new payments feature yet, but reports suggest that some users in the United States and the UK have started seeing it on the app. As of now, the payments feature is available only for a select people in the United States and is only in beta.
