Instagram users are known to carefully select the perfect song lyrics to caption their photos. Now, music streaming service Deezer is helping them add lyrics that fit their mood directly to Instagram Stories.
Instagram Stories is a feature that lets users post photos and videos that vanish after 24 hours.
Deezer users can now post up to five lines of song lyrics from the streamer’s 53 million tracks by tapping a new “Lyrics” symbol within the streaming app’s mobile player, then selecting and cropping verses. Once the user is satisfied, they’ll be redirected to Instagram Stories to post their lyric selection right away.
The new feature is similar to Instagram’s own new lyrics sticker, which the company unveiled earlier this month, and also works for podcast lyrics in countries where podcasts are available on Deezer.
“Songs offer us one of the best and most human ways to express ourselves,” commented Deezer chief product and growth officer Stefan Tweraser. “Thanks to our new integration with Instagram, music fans can now share not only their own special moments, but the song lyrics that tell their personal story in the best way.”
Deezer users can already share songs through Stories, allowing followers to listen to the entire track by clicking the accompaying “Play in Deezer” button. For the new sharing function, lyrics are provided by licensing service LyricFind.
