Instagram may soon offer a soundtrack for your Stories

That said, we might also see Instagram partnering with some music services for this feature, similar to what it did with GIPHY for GIF stickers. However, Wong was unable to post a story with the music sticker.

After quietly launching payments integration for Instagram, the service might soon introduce "music stickers" to its Stories feature.

Adding your favourite song as a sound track to an Instagram post could soon become a reality, thanks to a new feature found hidden in the site's Android app.

'It's okay for the feature to behave janky at this moment. This is new feature will compete with lip syncing app Musically and Snapchat as well. The photo-sharing platform is also testing a way to automatically detect a song that you are listening to and display the artist and song title as a visual label within Instagram Stories. It is unclear if the feature will play full music or allow only a music clip.

In the coming weeks, Instagram will also bring video chat to its platform and give friends a new way to spend time together - even when they aren't actually together.

Another developer, Jane Manchun Wong, has however been able to test the new Music Stickers feature and has provided the above screenshot taken directly from within the Instagram app, showing the prototype design looking a bit janky and slow causing the app to crash when she tried to post anything using the music stickers. Musical.ly clips are already being shared a lot on Instagram and adding this native music stickers feature could have an impact on Musical.ly's user base, as pointed out by 9To5Mac. These deals allow their music to be used in "video and other social experiences across Facebook, Instagram, and Oculus".

Recently, Instagram's parent company Facebook has signed deals with some of the largest record labels in the world, including Sony, Warner and Universal. The in-app payments feature will enable you to register your debit or credit card as part of your profile.

Tabs for Genres, Moods and Trending were also found lurking in the code.
