Why Instagram Music Isn’t Available For Some Accounts:

2. Not available in your Region

Adding music to your stories is one of the easy ways to make your videos more interesting and emotional. But, some accounts don’t have this feature.

Why?… This is because some countries don’t have this feature due to copyright issues.

Only some countries can enjoy this feature, the feature is yet to be launched in your country, that’s why it is not available in your country.

Instagram music grabs permission from record labels and due to this, the feature is made available only in a few countries. 

3. Limit of Music

Is your account a business account? If yes, then due to some copyright issues and policies of Instagram, music is not available for branded content and ads.

Also due to the licensing agreement a limit has been set up to adding music to your live videos.

As many users use the music of others without permission, the limit of music is adjusted by Instagram for your account.
