Instagram Lets Users Share Audio from SoundCloud to Stories
October 24, 2018 / CMS Connected
Instagram now offers SoundCloud integration, which lets users share audio from the free streaming service to their stories. Sharing audio in Instagram stories, such as a favorite song, is a popular practice amongst younger demographics. However, in order to do so, users will take a screenshot of what they’re listening to and publish the photo in their story. With SoundCloud integration, users can share a direct link to a piece of audio in their story. Other users who view the story can then tap on the link to open it in their SoundCloud app. Of course, music will likely end up being shared most frequently, but SoundCloud isn’t limited to just music. SoundCloud is also home to podcasts, speeches, and other types of spoken word audio.
