SoundCloud Will Now Let You Share Music Directly To Instagram Stories
Music platform SoundCloud will now let you share tunes directly to your Instagram Stories, the company announced today.
You’ll need to have the latest version of the SoundCloud app to do it, which means you’ll also need to sign up for an account. It’s free, though, so no dramas on that front. To get a tune onto your Story, jump into the SoundCloud app and search for the song you want. Tap the share button or three dots at the bottom of the screen (it depends on your phone) and select “Share to Instagram Stories”. Instagram will open up and you’ll be able to move the song around like a little sticker.

Spotify already has a similar feature, allowing users to share music on the social media app. Instagram also recently added its own library of music clips, so between all three, you should be able to share just about any song you can think of.
The feature is rolling out today across the iOS and Android versions of the SoundCloud app. You’ll probably need to update your Instagram app to get the integration working, so keep that in mind.
