Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram is currently the most used social media platform. Facebook has started taking it even more seriously than its own platform and is constantly updating it with new features and improvements. Instagram has now started testing a new Sticker feature that will show the lyrics of the music that is being played in the Stories background.
The new feature will be a sticker, similar to the multiple stickers we already see on the platform. But this sticker will be able to show the lyrics of the song which is being played. However, currently, the new feature is still in development with no official release date revealed. This feature was predicted in April 2019 on Twitter when Jane Manchun Wong reverse engineered codes of the photo-sharing platform. She even demonstrated how the new feature works in a short music video “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Ashley. As reported by The Verge, the lyrics went alongside the song as it played.
Currently, it is not known what region will this feature be made available in. And information about the public availability of the new feature still is not known. With this feature being launched in the recent future, Instagram Stories are set to become even more interesting. The Instagram Stories feature let the users share stories and short videos on their profile for 24-hours. After 24-hours, the Stories would disappear from the user’s profile. But there is an option by which he can save the posted Stories to their profile to view anytime they want, for that they would have to check the option of saving the Stories to their profile.
In 2018, the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform brought music to its Stories feature. This allowed the users to add background music to their regular Stories and customise it. The users could even add specific clips for their pictures and videos posted to Instagram Stories. Furthermore, last year, in December of 2018, Instagram added new and additional features which allowed the users to respond to questions with songs. There was also addition of new countdowns and question stickers for the live videos the users posted on their profile.
Moreover, in the recent elections going on in India, the platform brought a special Sticker for Instagram Stories. The Sticker was of a hand with a blue tick – the proof that one has voted. This was to promote voting and get more people to vote
