Instagram launched the music feature for Insta Stories in India after a long excruciating wait and we are more than happy about it. At least now you’ll not cringe over watching ‘Instagram music is not available in your country’ on your NRI cousin’s stories!

#Instagram Music 🎧 now available in India. This feature let’s users add official music tracks to their Instagram Stories.

How spooky a trait of Homo Sapiens, finding happiness in small, insignificant things!
Anyway, here’s an overview of how to use this feature:
To get this feature up and running, you need to update the app to the latest version. Afterwards, it’s a cakewalk, make a story tap the sticker icon. You’ll see the music icon there, tap it, you’ll get a list of songs, choose the song of your choice that goes with the story and you’re all set to rock!
Twitter had some interesting reactions to the news:

Dude you don't know how many times I've searched for "Rinkiya ke Papa" in Instagram Music and everytime they are showing no result found. I mean like what??? This is the first song they should've added before launching in india. #instagram

Seeing everyone's stories I finally realized why @instagram was so skeptical introducing Insta-music in India for so long.

We think this is the onset of a new war:
Instagrammers vs TikTokers!
