Now, the social site has a new weapon in its arsenal to wield against its rivals — karaoke lyrics for Stories.
Instagram Karaoke Lyrics Feature Debuts
When Snapchat debuted the stories format, Facebook put a copy on Instagram. More recently, TikTok made gains with lip-syncing. Not to be outdone, Instagram now sports karaoke lyrics for Stories.
Users simply choose a Music lens, select a song, and lyrics pop-up. Instagram even provides various animations to enhance content. TikTok is also launching its own tool to add text captions over videos.
A spokesperson for Instagram tells TechCrunch the following:
“Music can be a big part of expression on Instagram – between adding music to Stories, connecting with artists, sending song recs back-and-forth, there are lots of ways to connect with music on Instagram. Now, we’re building on our music features and introducing the ability to add lyrics when you add a song to your story.”
