In a fresh new move, Instagram users can now add lyrics to the music in their Stories.
The photo and video sharing platform announced the feature’s rollout on Thursday (June 6th). To add lyrics to a Story, users will find the process quite simple as they will first select a song from the app’s music library, then while pinpointing the section of the track they want to use, lyrics will (now) automatically pop up. People can then customize the animation and text style they want before completing the task.
To promote the offering, Instagram enlisted singer Billie Eilish to record a demo video in which she shares the lyrics to her song “My Strange Addiction.” Watch the clip below.
The lyrics feature is part of a recent push by Facebook to expand its music tools across its online platforms, which also include Whatsapp, Messenger and Oculus VR. It has already introduced features including music stickers and filters for individual artists (Eilish, Jonas Brothers, etc.) and products like Lip Sync Live (a competitor with TikTok).
