If you're really trying to set the mood for that perfect Instagram story, it might have just become easier.
On Thursday, Instagram launched a feature that lets users add clips of songs to their stories.
Instead of playing the songs through their speakers while recording a video, users can include up to 15 seconds of a song in their video and photo posts to their stories.
There's a few genres and moods to choose from, and a search feature for anything that's not included on the front page. Instagram says there's "thousands" of songs included, but the list isn't as extensive as what can be found on apps like Apple Music and Spotify.
Here's how to jump on Instagram's latest trend and add music to your stories:
Click on "Music" in the second row.
Drag the bar at the bottom to change which part of the song is being played. You can also tap on the time at the bottom to choose how long you want the clip to be.
