Instagram is bringing Stories-like song lyrics feature to Reels

Meta-owned social media platform Instagram is rolling out a feature that allows users to add song lyrics to their Reels, just like Instagram Stories. This comes after Instagram was said to be testing some new features over the past few weeks. Some of those features were focused on improving the way we look at our feed, and some of them were about collaborative posting. However, the new song lyrics feature introduced in Instagram Reels is a feature that is familiar to users as it has been available on Instagram Stories for some time.

Instagram head Adam Mosseri announced Updates on their broadcast channel. He said the team noticed that users were often manually adding song lyrics to their videos. In the announcement they expressed hope that this feature will help users and make it easier for them to express themselves. He also said that the company is currently working on more features for Reels.

While editing Instagram reels, if you want to add song lyrics to the video, you have to first tap on the music icon and then select a song. Once the song (whose lyrics you want to add) is selected, you can swipe left to add lyrics. It works more or less like the music feature on Instagram Stories, which has allowed us to add song lyrics (if available) to Stories for some time.

Recently, Mosseri said Instagram is testing a feature that lets users invite friends to contribute to their feed posts, resulting in collaborative carousel posts. Once the invite is extended, concerned users will be able to see the option to ‘Add to Post’ to add more images.

According to another statement from the company, people will soon be able to see posts only from verified people. Instagram claims to be actively testing it and seeking input from users to improve the feature. Three options are offered – one from feed following, one from favorites, and another from meta verified users. This can help companies and creators become more visible.

Notably, Facebook as well as Instagram have recently announced ad-free subscription plans in Europe. Users in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland can pay EUR 9.99 (roughly Rs. 880) per month for ad-free web access and EUR 12.99 (roughly Rs. 1,100) per month for iOS.
