This has been assured by the Head of Instagram Partnerships in India from his personal account, @ladyroxpop, who has explained that the new function allows adding music to publications, as was already possible in Stories and Reels.

So far it was precisely the Ephemeral Content Stories and Short Videos with Music Reels the only sections of Instagram where music could be added, as is the case with platforms such as TikTok.

At the moment, the new feature is accessible only to users of Instagram in some countries including India, as confirmed by the platform’s partner in charge of Partnerships.

Music is added to posts in the final step, “share”, and it is displayed between localization and advanced settings, with a slider from the main screen that leads to a second one in which it is possible to search for specific songs.

On this music screen too some songs are highlighted through sections such as “trends”, “For you” (based on user activity) or “recently used”.
