It's only vague to ask how many of you love Instagram? Instagram is leading in the social media market after Twitter, thanks to the fantastic built-in beautify feature. Videos and images captured look realistic here, and it also lets you update your daily stories. Though Indians got access to this feature in 2019, some countries like Saudi Arabia, North Africa, among many others, have been recently introduced to this feature.

Step 6: Select the brief part of the song that you wish to add to your story. (Stories are concise generally). When you make the selection, the lyrics will appear corresponding to that section.
