Nowadays, "Stories" is a quite popular feature among social media, such as Facebook, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Instagram, and etc., known for staying only for a period of 24 hours and disappearing afterwards.
Interested people like interesting things. It’s great fun playing Instagram stories, but wouldn’t it be more exciting if we are able to add background music to Instagram stories?
In this post, we are going to introduce two ways to add music from Spotify to Instagram stories. The first method is by the Instagram app itself and the second one is by a popular third-party app.
As we all know, Instagram can extract sounds from the smartphone. If we have a song running on your Spotify, iTunes or Google music, the app will directly capture the song. Therefore, to add Spotify music to Instagram, we can just play a song on Spotify when capturing a story. Here come the detailed steps:
Step 1: Launch Spotify, play the song you wish to add to your story, use the time bar to choose the section of the song you want to add, and then pause the song.
Step 2: Launch Instagram and Tap on the camera icon at the top left of the corner.
Step 3. Now play the song on Spotify and touch & hold the shutter button to start recording.
Step 4. Tap on the "+" button at the bottom to upload your story.
Tips: Once you have recorded the story, the song playing on Spotify would have had been added to it.
Method 1 is the easiest way to add Spotify track to Instagram story, but the downside of it is that Instagram will capture other sounds including noises from the surroundings as well except for the song playing on Spotify. Besides, the audio quality will be inferior to Spotify.
If you’d like to add music from Spotify with the highest audio quality, please refer to Method 2.
To pursue a perfect way to set Spotify music as the background music for Instagram stories, we can first download the song from Spotify and then add it to Instagram stories with a video editor.
Nevertheless, Spotify is a streaming music service, for which we are unable to download any song from it because of DRM protection. In other words, we will have to get rid of the DRM first before we import the song to a video editor.
