Remember the good ol' days of MySpace?

Well, with Instagram's newest feature, you can now add music to your feed posts. Yes, really.

We’re sharing all the details — including how to access and use the feature, below.

What Is Instagram’s Music in Feed Feature?

According to Instagram, the Music in Feed feature will “provide creators with more tools to bring their content to life.” 

Knowing that music is already frequently used to complement Stories and Reels, this new feature is a logical move for Instagram.

With it, creators and users alike can get creative and add a whole new layer of storytelling to their posts.

We're here for it.

How To Add Music To Instagram Feed Posts

Next, choose your photo, add your caption, tags, hashtags, and location — similar to how you usually do it.

Then, to add music to your post, click on the "Add music" option:
