Instagram may soon offer a soundtrack for your Stories

  Instagram may soon offer a soundtrack for your Stories With recent music licensing deals between Facebook and record labels like Sony, Warner Music, Universal and other European publishers, it would seem as if Facebook, and by extension Instagram, is uniquely poised to bring soundtracks to shared videos. According to a report at TechCrunch, it seems as if some code in the Instagram Android app could point to new music features like stickers that would let you find and add copyrighted music to your Stories from places like Spotify or SoundCloud. The code, initially found by Ishan Agarwal, shows an unreleased search music feature hidden within the Instagram Stories system. TechCrunch reports that music overlay stickers can be searched for genres, moods, or trending songs, then placed in videos and possibly photos. Of course, finding un-implemented code doesn't mean that it will become a full-fledged feature any time soon, but it's definitely interesting for advertisers and competition with services like Musically and Snapchat, as TechCrunch notes.

Instagram is working on a new feature that will show users just how much time they spend with the app, in a wider effort from tech companies to get people to look up from their phones.

The new feature was originally discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, a computer scientist with a record of reverse engineering popular apps to uncover upcoming features. Wong's find was first reported by TechCrunch, and confirmed by Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom on Twitter.

Wong dug around in Instagram's code and found a feature seemingly known internally as "time spent." This is seemingly visualized on the app as a sidebar feature called "Usage insights."

Instagram is planning a new feature that will show people how much time they spend on the app . The new feature was uncovered by computer scientist Jane Manchun Wong, and confirmed by Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom.

There's no further detail on what the "Usage insights" feature will actually show, like your overall time spent on Instagram, or whether it just shows a limited time period of a month or a day.

Systrom simply tweeted "It's true" when TechCrunch first reported the story.

The new feature follows Google introducing time management controls for Android, with a new dashboard that lets users set how much time they want to spend on each app. When they use up their allotted time, the app will gray out on their phone screen.

Apple has similarly promised better usage controls for children, but has yet to deliver.
