Social Media giant Facebook today launched Instagram Music in India. The new feature allows its users to express themselves through music on stories along with other creative tools like Lyrics on Instagram, Lip Sync Live, and the ability to add songs to their Facebook Profiles as well as Instagram. To license music, Facebook teamed up various Indian music labels namely T-Series Music, Zee Music Company and Yash Raj Films earlier this year.
Speaking about music on Facebook and Instagram, Manish Chopra, Director and Head of Partnerships, Facebook India, said, “Facebook and music share something special — they both bring people together and enable personal expression. And that’s why music is important for us. We want to make it possible for the Facebook and Instagram communities to express themselves and connect around music on our platforms. With India’s strong music ecosystem, we’re thrilled to open up the ability for people in the country to include music in the moments they share on our platforms. We’ve partnered with the Indian music community to enable these new products, and we look forward to seeing all the ways people in India use them to express themselves in fun and engaging way”.
