How to Add Music from Spotify to Instagram Story

Instagram Stories helps us to capture everything in between and create a bigger, richer story than a series of individual photos can provide. Adding cool music to your photos and videos makes them so much fun and enticing. Maybe you’ve got some great photos or videos, but your story is still missing one important factor — music. Instagram offers a selection of tunes from its own library and your favorite music streaming services, like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Shazam. You may wonder how you can add a song to your story to make it lively. In this article, we will share 3 useful methods with you.

Method 1 Add Music to Instagram Story on Instagram

You can add music directly to your story using Instagram’s library. Instagram’s music library is filled with popular songs and artists like Beyoncé, Guns N’ Roses, and Ariana Grande. Here’s how to do it.

1. Open the Instagram app on your iOS or Android device.

2. Swipe left from the home screen to open the Stories feature. Alternatively, tap the plus "+" sign on your profile picture in the top-left corner to create a new Story.

3. Take or select the photo or video you want to post to your Instagram Story.

4. In the menu bar along the top of your screen, tap the square smiley face Sticker icon.

Method 2 Add Music to Instagram Story from Spotify

If you are listening to Spotify music, you can add it to your Instagram story by grabbing it from the Spotify app.

1. Open the Spotify app on your iOS or Android device, and find the music you want to add to your Instagram Story.

5. Spotify will open the Instagram app and automatically upload the cover art of the song to a new Instagram Story.
