Trying to add music or a soundtrack to a photo/video in the Instagram story?

Unfortunately, the photo-sharing app isn’t allowing you to do so? Well, don’t worry, you aren’t alone! 

I’ve been trying to add music and soundtracks to my Instagram stories and it’s not even an option. Why did this happen? I have no idea, however the following tips will enlighten you and help you know what to do in this case.

1.Have you updated the app?
To enjoy music in Instagram stories, first, you have to get the update. Install the most recent version from the App Store or Google Play Store. Find Instagram, and simply update it. 

2.Sign in and out of the app
If the music on the Instagram story is still not working, simply sign out from the app. 

  • Go to the Profile section 
  • Tap on three horizontal lines from top-right
  • Go to Settings & tap on Log out button

After this, log in using the same credentials. Check if you can use an Instagram music on stories.

3.Delete and reinstall
Consider reinstalling the Instagram app from your phone.

  • Go to Google Play Store or App Store for reinstallation
  • Usually, this method helps in removing bugs that are present in the link & choking the story
  • Install Instagram the usual way
    If Instagram music sticker was not working, previously. It may work right after reinstalling the app! 

4.Switch to personal account
Using Instagram Business account? Some people have reported the loss of Instagram Music story feature after switching their account to business. So, you can try giving it a try to switch your account to personal & enjoy the music on your stories again.

  • Go to Instagram Settings 
  • Navigate to the Account section 
  • Choose the option “Switch to Personal account” 

Keep patience; you’ll soon get Instagram Music Story sticker working again! 

5.Switch to creator account
This hack has worked out for several users to fix Instagram Music Not Working. Doing so will help you enjoy songs again in your story. To switch to the creator account, follow the steps below:

  • Go to Instagram Settings 
  • Navigate to the Account section 
  • Choose the option “Switch to Creator account”

Keep patience, it might take some days, but you’ll soon get Instagram Music Story sticker working again! 

6.Contact Instagram
This method might/might not work for some users, but its worth a try to quickly fix Instagram Music Not Working problem. Try routinely contacting Instagram Support Team often; you never know when people behind the screen will help you. If your concern gets noticed, you’ll be able to fix your music issue faster than you probably anticipated.

If everything does not succeed always ensure you have music on in the background on your stories or just use your friends phone if need be.
