Instagram are rolling out Lyrics in Stories to users in countries that currently have access to music stickers. When the music sticker is used and you select a song from Audio Library, you'll be able to reference the song lyrics to not only help you select the exact part of the song you want to use but to also visually enhance your Stories post. If the song you select has lyrics available, you’ll have the ability to choose from a variety of lyrics animations, font designs, and colours. And like with all
stickers, you can move the lyrics around, resize, and rotate them before sharing to your story, and audience.
If a song does not currently have lyrics available, you will see “Lyrics aren't available for this song”. Our team is working diligently to add new lyrics every day, so check back early and often! Lyrics are being compiled and delivered to us by our lyric partner MusixMatch.
