A decade ago, being on social media was rare but felt exciting. Most of us made weird usernames on Twitter and went on adding random people on Facebook. Fast forward a decade, social media has gotten boring. New names that do the same stuff. When Instagram got people’s attention, it was flooded with a lot of features. But Stories quickly became the favorite.
The feature, that allows you to capture in-the-moment videos or post images for a limited time, has gotten a few updates. Most of the time, users posted a screenshot of a song they were playing on a loop on Spotify. But thanks to recent development, Instagram and Spotify are working together (kind of). So now you can easily add Spotify songs to Instagram story. Let’s jump right now!
