The recent update on Instagram lets users add music to their Instagram stories. You can now see the Music option under the record button and post Stories with your latest favorite jams. Unfortunately, some users still do not have this option even after updating the app.

If you’re one of them, get rid of that frustration! You can still add some backgrounds song to your Stories, and all you need is your phone.
