Instagram has been busy adding new features to its photo and video-sharing platform, including the ability to overlay stickers onto your Stories post. According to Instagram, the option to put music in your Stories will be available on iOS at first, but Android users will get the new feature as well later on.

Users will now be able to add a soundtrack to their story, selecting a track from a library of thousands of songs.

If you're really trying to set the mood for that flawless Instagram story, it might have just become easier.

Obviously, people who view your story will hear the song playing while they gawk at your photo or video.

But company spokesman Michael Pflughoeft said it was assessing the potential impact of the production shift on its US facilities. The president has repeatedly attacked Amazon.com Inc over what he sees as its unfair treatment of the U.S.

When the feature reaches users, they will find a new Music mode that can be found under the in-app camera shutter button. Once you snap a picture or a video, tap on the newly added music icon on the sticker window. For users, it's a compromise: you can't necessarily use the exact song you want, but you don't have to worry about your Story being taken down. A sticker will tell them the song title and artist name. It's coming to Android soon. Then, you can cut up the song by fast-forwarding and rewinding through the song to pick the best part to go with the story.

The feature is now available only in a few selected countries and Instagram is working towards launching the feature in more countries.

"Instagram "Stories" is now used by 400 million every day, and we're excited to give our community new ways to feel closer to their friends and followers", the statement added.
