There are times when you come across songs with lyrics so eloquent that you can’t help but wonder how the lyricist came up with the right words to express emotions and feelings. To help you share songs that are lyrical masterpieces, Spotify and Apple Music recently added lyric sharing to Instagram Stories. In this article, we will discuss the steps required to share song lyrics with IG Stories.

We have added a separate set of instructions for sharing song lyrics from Spotify and Apple Music to Instagram Stories. You can jump to the respective section depending on the music streaming service you are using. Having said that, let’s get started.

Share Spotify song lyrics on IG Stories

1. Open Spotify and scroll down to view song lyrics. In the lower right corner of the lyrics sheet, you will see a ‘Share’ button. Tap on it and choose the lines you want to share. You can share up to 5 lines in a story. Once you’ve chosen the lines, hit the Share button.

2. A personalized share sheet appears when you press the Share button. From there, you can choose the target app and change the color scheme by tapping on the map preview. To share lyrics on Instagram, press the ‘Instagram Stories’ button. The app will now take you to Instagram and then you can add it to your story by pressing the “Your Story” button.

2. You can now choose the lines you want to share. Keep in mind that you can share lyrics with up to 150 characters. Once you have chosen the lines, press the ‘Instagram Stories’ button to share the story. If you are using an iPhone, you can share lyrics on iMessage from this page. The feature was introduced at the same time as the beta version of iOS 14.5.

3. When the app generates the story, you will be redirected to Instagram. Press the “Your Story” button to share it. What I love about Apple Music’s lyrics sharing implementation is the attention to detail. When your Instagram followers tap on the “Play on Apple Music” option, they will be directed to the exact timestamp of the row you shared in the story.. This is something missing from Spotify’s lyrics sharing, at least for now.
