In Pakistan, the long-awaited Instagram music function is now accessible, allowing users to add various melodies and soundtracks to their stories and posts.
The notification ‘Instagram Music is not available in your region’ was previously shown to users in Pakistan. The lack of availability was owing to the region’s lack of a music license.
In 2018, the photo-sharing site made the music option available to users all around the world. Instagram published the following in an official blog post:
You may now include music in your tale that matches every scene and helps you communicate your emotions. Every day, 400 million people use Instagram Stories, and we’re delighted to provide our community with more opportunities to connect with their friends and followers.
Tap it to access a music library with hundreds of tracks – you can search for a specific song, browse by mood, genre, or what’s hot, and listen to a preview by tapping the play button. You may fast-forward and rewind through the track once you’ve chosen your music to find the exact section that matches your tale.
The platform also added the following:
Before recording a video, you may optionally pick a song. Swipe to the new ‘Music’ option under the record button when the camera opens. Find a song, cut off the section you want, then make a video while the music plays in the background.
