Canadians can finally utilize the long awaited ‘Music’ feature while uploading Instagram and Facebook stories.
Facebook announced the launch of its Music tools in Canada on Wednesday, allowing Canadian users to personalize their Instagram and Facebook stories by adding songs and lyrics.
Once both apps have been updated, users in the Great White North will also be able to hear music on stories posted by people they follow in other countries.
The feature was first rolled out across 51 countries in the summer of 2018 and is now finally available in Canada, with a host of Canadian and Indigenous artists to choose from.
Now, when you tap to add a sticker to a photo or video in Stories, you will be able to see a music icon.
Tapping it will open a library of thousands of songs that you can then search for by typing in your selection, or browsing by mood, genre or what’s popular.
Once a song is chosen, you will automatically see lyrics pop up, which can then be used to select which section of the song you would like to use.
Lyrics can either be removed from the stories altogether, or included. Users can tap the lyrics to change the animation and style, and move the text around to other parts of the screen.
It’s officially time to add a playlist to your day-to-day life!
