Person Creating Instagram Story

Instagram Stories are great for sharing small snapshots of your daily life—lunches, pet antics, commutes, and funny memes.

Over the years, Instagram has added features to make Stories more fun and help users make artistic productions out of each upload. One such update is the ability to add song lyrics to your Instagram Stories.

If you’re a music buff, here’s a cool way to share your favorite lyrics with your friends. Let’s check out how to put song lyrics on your Instagram Stories.

How to Put Song Lyrics on Instagram Stories

  1. Launch the Instagram app.
  2. From the home screen, tap your profile picture in the top-left to create a Story. Or, simply swipe right on your home screen to enter Story creation.
  3. Add the pictures or videos you want to publish on your Story. You could create them in real-time by tapping the shutter/record button, or you could select an existing file from your gallery.
  4. Before hitting publish, swipe up and select Music from the Effects menu. If you don’t see it on your screen, tap on the Search bar and type Music.
  5. Choose a song from which you’d like to include the lyrics in your Instagram Story. You can either scroll through the songs that have been recommended to you or use the search bar to find a song. You can also add music from third-party music services like Spotify or SoundCloud.
  6. Use the slider bar at the bottom of the screen to select a snippet of the song. The lyrics of the selected bit will appear on your screen, but keep in mind that snippets will only last 15 seconds. It’s also important to mention that some song lyrics may not be available.
  7. If a song has lyrics, you can choose from four formatting options by tapping any of the available A icons.
  8. Tap Done at the top of the screen when you’re finished, resize and position the lyrics sticker as you like, then publish the Story.
