While it's not exactly new, as people have been adding music to the background of their stories with Spotify, the app is now making it much easier for users to add music to their stories with their new in-app feature.

The song library can be searched and sorted by mood and genre, and users are able to seek through a track and select the segment they want to include in their story.

Merkel still seeking European solution on migration: spokesman
Migrants not entitled to asylum should be returned directly to their country of origin and not via other countries, Macron said. He said leaders planned to try to sort out the legality of a range of ideas meant to clamp down on illegal migration.

For the time being, music will be available only in select countries, but Instagram plans on making the feature global in the future. You can download Instagram from the App Store for free.

To add music, simply tap the sticker icon and select the music option, once you've captured a photo or video. You can preview songs before adding them to the Story as well. But this was done by just playing a song out of the phone while capturing a photo or video.

Music can also be added after the fact by using a new sticker. While it'll be rolling out to iOS users now, the new music feature is "coming soon" for Android. What's more, you can even pick a song before capturing a video.

The song will become available as a sticker, much like GIFs or locations are added on Stories now. Additionally, the feature is now only in select countries.
