Training Wheels: How To Use the Music Sticker in Instagram Stories

How To Use the Music Sticker in Instagram Stories | Training Wheels from Tricycle Creative

In their latest update, Instagram rolled out some new features and we thought we’d take a moment to give a quick guide on the new Music sticker¬†that can be placed on top of photos and videos before they’re shared.

Note: The screenshots for this guide were captured in the iOS Instagram app.

1
First, take a photo or upload a photo from one of your albums to your Story and click on the Sticker button in the upper-right hand corner of the screen.

When I was putting this together, my friends brought over delicious pastries from Tiny Boxwoods in Austin. They are delicious and will be the photo I use for this walkthrough to make you hungry and jealous.

Then, you're going to select the Music sticker option from the pop-up. If your pop-up doesn't look like this, try swiping left or right inside the pop-up window.

Once you select the Music sticker option, a Search bar and Categories (Popular, Moods, Genres) appear. Take your pick or search for songs that fit your photo.

At the time of this post, Drake is a big deal. Maybe even the biggest deal. I don’t know why and I don’t get it. #SorryNotSorry

Soooo…instead of Drake, I did a search for a topic related to these delicious pastries.
