How to Add Music from Spotify to Instagram Stories?


One of Instagram's most useful features is called Stories, which allows you to capture in-the-moment videos, or lets you post a bunch of photos that play like a slideshow. The photos and videos will disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in feed.


Instagram Stories are an incredible way to connect with your audience in fresh and authentic ways. If you’re creating an Instagram Story, one of the fabulous ways through which you can make your posts more interesting and entertaining is by adding music track or sound effect to your stories. Don't know how to add music to your story? Don't worry! It is quite simple to get it done.

In this post, we will explore two ways in which we can add music from Spotify to Instagram stories. The first is through the Instagram app itself and the other is through the third-party apps.

Method 1: Through Instagram

Instagram story also allows users to capture sounds from the phone's microphone when you capturing the story. This is also the easiest way to add music to Instagram story. Let us take you through the process:

Step 1: Open the Spotify Music app, and cue up the song you want to add to the Instagram story as a soundtrack.

Step 2: Next, you need to select the song you wish to add to your story and tap on it. Now, use the time bar to choose the section of the song you want to add. Then, pause the song.

Step 3: Next, run Instagram app and be sure you are logged into the account.

Step 4: Then play the desired song in Spotify and simultaneously record your video by tapping the Camera button in the upper left corner of Instagram to open the Story camera. As Instagram allows you to record video while playing a song, it will automatically add the song to your story and Voila!! Your work is done.

Method 2: Through Third-Party Apps

Although it's very easy to record music in the background for adding to your story, the sound quality won’t nearly be as good as if you add it directly to the story, such as including background noises. If you really need to add your favorite Spotify music to Instagram stories with great audio quality, you have to do two jobs:

1) One is to download Spotify music to MP3/ AAC/ FLAC/ WAV/AIFF/ALAC: As all of Spotify music are protected, you should use a Spotify Music Converter like Sidify to download music from Spotify to MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, AIFF or ALAC with 100% original quality.

2) Another one is to use third-party software to import your audio file to Instagram video: Most of the times we want to upload a previously recorded video and add the background song in the later stage. There are a few apps specifically built to take any video you’ve recorded on your phone (or tablet) and merge it with an audio file to create a work of art that’ll have people double-tapping all day long. The app that comes to the rescue is the InShot Video Editor, which is available Android and iPhone users.

In the following guide, we'll show you how to download Spotify music to MP3 for adding to your Instagram stories.
