Enable add music feature on Instagram Story


This tutorial will show you how to enable add music feature on Instagram story. This is a great new feature that will work very well to enhance the Instagram stories feature for users.

So follow me as I show you how to add music to your Instagram stories.

Availability of the Music feature on Instagram

The Instagram music feature for stories is only available for those in United States (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and Australia for now.

The feature might be rolled out to everyone later on, keep your fingers crossed if you have not gotten the feature yet in your country.

Why don’t I have the Music sticker or feature ?

The seems to only be initially available for USA, UK and Australia. If you are not in these countries then the feature is not usually enabled for you.

Even that’s not a guaranteed as many users from those countries still don’t have the feature. In other cases some of their accounts have it while others don’t.

Alternative Way to Enable the Feature:

Alternatively you can try using a VPN and setting the location to USA.

1.Uninstall Instagram.

2. Install a popular VPN app if you don’t have one already give this one here a try.

3.Launch the VPN on install and select USA if not already selected and Install Instagram again from the Google play store.

4.This time when you add a sticker like shown above this time the Music sticker should be there.

This should work on both Instagram and Android devices. You simply need to find a good VPN for either device.
