Instagram is working on a new Stories function that can display the corresponding lyrics for a music clip. The ‘lyrics stickers’ were noticed by Jane Manchun Wong, who often discovered novelties in Instagram.
Jane Manchun Wong discovered the new feature when she added a YouTube music video to an Instagram Story. The new ‘lyrics’ option appeared between the ‘stickers’ available. During playback of the video clip, it shows the corresponding lyrics in real time. The function still seems experimental; it doesn’t work with every song and the ‘lyrics stickers’ aren’t available in every region either.
It is not the first musical feature that Instagram adds. For example, since last summer, the app offers the possibility to enhance posts with a dash of background music.
