Instagram has a new 'trick' to make photo posts more engaging
The Instagram, η πασίγνωστη πλατφόρμα φωτογραφιών και βίντεο, δοκιμάζει τώρα ένα νέο τρόπο για να κάνει τις τυπικές αναρτήσεις με photos πιο ελκυστικές. Συγκεκριμένα, προσεχώς το Instagram θα επιτρέπει στους χρήστες του να προσθέτουν τραγούδια στα καρουζέλ των φωτογραφιών τους. Την ανακοίνωση έκανε ο ίδιος ο Mark Zuckerberg, its founder and head Meta. More specifically, he revealed that the feature is already accessible in a few countries, while there are plans for wider availability worldwide.
It's worth noting that Instagram has long had a feature for adding songs to individual photos. However, incorporating music into photo carousels makes even more sense, with Zuckerberg stressing:
It makes more sense to add music to a photo carousel. This way you have more time to listen to the song as you view multiple photos.
Additionally, Instagram is experimenting with adding music to Notes as well. This is the feature that allows users to share statuses with their friends, which appear above the message inbox. The user's friends will be able to see the song title and the songart to appear above the Note. Zuckerberg showed in a short video how users can select and add a section of a song to a Note, much like adding music to individual posts or Reels.
The way songs will appear in Instagram Notes:
At the moment there is no information on the specific countries where Meta will start testing, nor on when we can expect the features to be more widely available to all users worldwide.
