Instagram has been rolling out new features these past few weeks. For some time, the photo-sharing app has been putting all its focus on e-commerce updates. However, it seems that things are now coming back to normal. But how? Well, the social media platform is starting to release non-e-commerce related features again, and the Instagram music reply feature is proof of that.
So, what is the music reply feature and how does it work? Well, the music reply feature is the new Instagram release involving music recommendations from your followers. With it, you can have the people who follow you to suggest a song to you through the questions stickers on Stories.
How To Use It
In order to use this feature, you just have to follow a few simple steps. First of all, you need to enter your Stories and take a photo or record a video.
Second of all, tap the sticker icon on the top of your screen and select the question option. After that, an “Ask me a question sticker” will pop up on your screen.
Finally, tap the music option below the sticker and it will enable the option for your followers to recommend a track from the Instagram music library.
Following all of these steps will eventually allow you to see the recommendations from your followers in the viewer’s list of your Stories.
Unfortunately, this feature is not available in some countries. At least not at the moment. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean it will not become available for everyone soon. It means some people will simply have to wait a little bit longer in order to be able to use the music reply feature.
Something very similar happened with the emoji shortcuts. It was first available in countries such as Canada, Spain, and the U.S.A, and about a month later it became available for other countries. In short, you just need to be a little patient.
