  • Instagram code reveals music service within Stories and ability to detect music

Days after announcing a new partnership to allow users to share what they're listening to in Instagram Stories or Instagram Direct straight from Spotify, comes a report from Techcrunch that code within the Instagram Android app points to more new music related features. The feature is located within the sticker tray that's present on the Instagram Stories editing page.

49ers' Foster pleads not guilty in domestic violence case
The identity of the driver, who was interviewed by police, and another guest staying at Foster's home, are potential witnesses. Foster 's friend stayed with Ennis and him that February 11 night, and claimed he was unaware of any altercation or argument.

The code further reveals an unreleased "Search Music" feature built-in beside its location and friend-mention sticker search options inside Instagram Stories. It could also pose a threat to rival platforms and apps, but that of course depends on how well it takes off with Instagram users. Wong also notes that Instagram automatically detected a song she was now playing on her phone, and created a sticker for it. Per the screenshot shared by TechCrunch, users will be able to choose from three differently categorised sections under the sticker. Spotted first by a Twitter user Ishan Agarwal, the search for music clips can be refined by going through separate tabs such as Trending, Genres, and Moods.

Still on Instagram and new features, the company recently added a native payment feature to signal a new era in the area of ecommerce. Instagram Stories' music stickers feature is said to use licensing deals with major record labels signed by its parent company, Facebook. This is new feature will compete with lip syncing app Musically and Snapchat as well. How the system will function exactly, is not clear yet, but adding a Music Sticker to your video will likely play a clip from the song you've selected as background music to the video. Unlike WhatsApp, the feature is only for e-commerce purposes and not for peer to peer payments.

Chelsea entertain Liverpool in race for the top four
Because of the size of the achievement, it may be hard to focus on anything else but the final that will be played on May 26. With Chelsea now sitting fifth in the Premier League, they are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Instagram is adding a lot of new features to Stories, including the ability to let people post information from apps directly to their Instagram Stories, and the addition of Slow-Mo mode as well. 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.
