Instagram just added a new feature that allows you to add music to your posts. Up until now, you could only add a song to a reel. Now you can add a song that goes best with your photo posts too. Up to 90 seconds of a song is permitted.
"Music is a huge part of expression on Instagram, and we’re excited to provide the ability to add music to Feed photo posts like you can with Reels and Stories," the announcement reads in part. "No matter which format works best to tell your story, you can now add a soundtrack to your favorite photo moments to bring them to life," said a statement put out by the creators of Instagram.
So here is how you add music to your photos.
- Create a post
- Go all the way to the last step before you hit "Share"
- At the bottom underneath "Add Location" you should see "Add Music"
- Choose the song you want!
Can't wait to see your posts!
