Can I add music to an existing photo or video in my Instagram story?

What if the song I want to use is not available in the music library?
If the song you want to use is not available in the music library, Instagram provides a wide variety of songs to choose from. However, if you can’t find the specific song you want, you can try using a different song or explore other music streaming apps that allow you to share music on Instagram.
Can I change the music in my Instagram story after it has been posted?
No, once you have posted your Instagram story with music, you cannot change or edit the music. However, you can delete the story and create a new one with a different song if you wish.
