There's no word on how exactly does this feature works, but it's possible that users will be able to pick a song and add it as a sticker to their Stories that would allow the people watching those Stories to play it. However, Wong was unable to post a story with the music sticker.

At the F8 2018, Facebook announced that Instagram will soon get a video calling feature. This could be a fun way for users to add soundtracks to Stories, or share their favourite songs.

Tech2 reached out to Instagram to know more about the feature, but they declined to comment. As of November 2017, Instagram Stories has been enjoying 300 million daily active users, a number that is much higher than Snapchat, which reported 191 million daily active users recently. Facebook has been experimenting with enabling users to add music to their Instagram videos, but the selection of tunes was deliberately scarce and limited to non-popular artists.

There's no confirmation from Instagram at press time on these music features, and, there's always a chance of Instagram scrapping the development of these features and decide not to roll it out.

Ms Wong told TechCrunch that she was able to test a primitive version of the Music Stickers.

According to TechCrunch, Instagram is also testing a way to automatically detect a song that's playing and then display the song as a visual label - kind of like what Shazam does but with a sharing twist.

New "music stickers" will let Instagram will let users search for and add a song to posts, thanks to recent licensing deals with record labels and music publishers made by Facebook. The social media giant also entered an agreement with Sony/ATV and Global Music Rights this past January, and with Warner Music Group back in March.

The code also seems to illustrate that these stickers will also act as a way to give users the chance to listen to the song, effectively turning your photo or video into an amateur music video if you so wish.

New code has been found in Instagram's app that mentions a feature called "music stickers".

Tabs for Genres, Moods and Trending were also found lurking in the code. Instagram Stories now supports videos that are only 15 seconds long, and it is not clear how it will pick song for the story.
