Instagram is testing a new feature that will allow users to add songs to their photo carousels. The feature is already accessible in a few nations, and more will shortly follow, according to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
It makes more sense to listen to music while swiping through a carousel of images than it does to do so while seeing a single image, which is what the functionality will allow users to do.
Zuckerberg also mentioned that Instagram is testing a way to add music to Notes, the feature that lets users share a status with friends.
This means that users will be able to select and attach a portion of a song to their Note, similar to adding music to an individual post or Reel. Your friends will be able to see the name of the song and artist above your status.
While there are already similar features on Instagram, the addition of music to carousels and Notes is expected to make the app more entertaining and useful. Users will be able to add music to several photographs instead of just one in the same manner that they already add music to Instagram carousels.

Users of Instagram can share pictures, videos, and stories with their followers and is owned by Meta. The app also offers various editing tools and filters, and users can interact with other accounts by liking, commenting, and sharing posts. With the addition of music to carousels and Notes, Instagram will likely become even more popular and attract new users. However, it is unclear which countries have access to these new features, and Meta declined to provide specific locations.
