How To Know Whether Your Instagram DM Has Been Read (2021)


How to Add Song Lyrics to Your Instagram Story 


If you’ve noticed your Instagram stories feed looking a little more like personalized karaoke videos in the past six months or so, that’s because last year the ‘Gram added a feature that allows you to add lyrics to your stories. The addition makes it possible not only to add music to your story (you’ve been able to do that for a while), but also see those lyrics on top of the image or video, similar to what you might do with the app TikTok.


To add lyrics to your Instagram story, launch the app and then select the camera icon at the top of the screen, just like when you’re adding anything else to a story. Then add or take the photo or video you’d like to feature in the story.


From there, scroll to “music” from the bottom menu and then select a song and drag the music bar to the part of the song you’d like to play as part of your story.

Above the song, you’ll see a button for “lyrics.” The way the lyrics are displayed can be customized for you. Here are a few versions I did on top of a photo of my new friend “Donkey.”

Lyrics react in real time with the slider, so if you select a different part of the song then the corresponding lyrics will automatically show up as well. We should also note that not every single song available in the Instagram music library has this feature (but many do).
