Testing songs in photo carousels – Instagram


Instagram is currently testing a new feature where you can add songs to the photo carousels you post on the platform. The announcement was made by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg on his Instagram broadcast channel and confirmed that the feature is already available in some countries with more to follow.

Although Instagram already has a similar feature that lets you add songs to individual photos, adding them to a carousel of pictures makes more sense. You now have more time to listen to the song as you swipe through multiple photos in a carousel.

Here’s how it looks when you add a song to a Note.

In addition, Zuckerberg revealed that Instagram is testing a way to add music to Notes, a feature similar to AIM where you can share a status with friends. In a short video, it was shown that the platform will allow you to select and attach a portion of a song to your Note, just like adding music to an individual post or Reel, and your friends will be able to see the name of the song and the artist above your status.

Meta has not yet disclosed which countries have access to these features.
