Wong also notes that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone, and created a sticker for it. Wong also told TechCrunch that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone and created a sticker for it. Spotify also seems to be a likely candidate because Facebook, Instagram's parent company, has integrated Spotify to its platform in 2011. Now the only way to have music heard in your stories is to have it play in the background on your device while you are recording a story.

Still on Instagram and new features, the company recently added a native payment feature to signal a new era in the area of ecommerce.

It looks like Instagram could soon begin allowing users to add music to Stories.

Many close friends and family members thronged the Kapoor house which was adorned by lights and soaked in the festive fervour. The families have said it is an "intimate affair" and have requested the media "to respect the family's need for privacy".

We will be keep an eye out for any news of when the new soundtrack sticker feature will roll out to users but it certainly is an interesting move and would put further pressures on other social media apps like Musical.ly and SnapChat. Per the screenshot shared by TechCrunch, users will be able to choose from three differently categorised sections under the sticker. These music stickers can be searched using tabs for "Genres", "Moods", and "Trending". However, Wong was unable to post a story with the music sticker. However, it could be a bigger threat to Musically, an app meant for lip syncing to music. With the new Payments feature, users will be able to store their card details and purchase directly from the app without having to leave the app. However, thanks to Facebook's numerous high-profile deals with various music publishers, such as Sony, Universal, and Warner, the feature may finally be rolled out to everyone in a much more fleshed-out form. Instagram now also allows the third parties to design unique, interactive camera experiences for users, allowing them to experiment with new effects in "Stories" with the "Try it on" feature.

I haven't spotted the new payments feature yet, but reports suggest that some users in the U.S. and the United Kingdom have started seeing it on the app.
