Instagram adds lyrics support in Stories

Instagram has added the option to include song lyrics in their Stories. Users of the mobile social media app can select a track from Instagram’s music library and then select the section of that song’s lyrics they want to include in their post. There are multiple options in display animations and font styles for users to choose from. This feature will roll out to regions where Facebook has made its music library available.

Facebook, which owns Instagram, has been making a push to secure licensing deals with the major labels and with independent music operations. Those agreements have already translated into other music-focused features for Facebook’s properties, as well as the launch of its Lip Sync Live short form lip sync video platform.
