In the bid of staying ahead of its competitors by miles, Instagram is bringing a new feature allowing its users to add songs to their profiles. Myspace introduced this feature way back but it could not gain pace in the social media platforms. Earlier Myspace rolled out this feature in the 2000s even before Orkut and Facebook came into being. it allowed the users to set a background song complementing their profile.
Likewise, the users accessed the ability to publicly express themselves through the song complementing their personality or profile. It has now become the most awaited feature update among users eager to get a new user experience after the software update.
There is stiff competition among social media platforms to present themselves as more engaging for the users. They aim their best to be as zanzy and quirky as possible. It involves always being creative in thinking and creating something cooler to get new users aboard. Recently, Alessandro Paluzzi, developer and notable leaker, tweeted a few screenshots depicting the new feature.
He revealed that this astounding feature would appear at the bottom of your bio on Instagram just below the link section. This would give a wholly new experience to the users as this most awaited update would enhance the profile presentation. The profile song or band would tell loads about you- something that your profile picture or details could not.

Instagram Profile Song- Journey Till Now
The Myspace era started in the early 2000s. between 2005 to 2008 it became the largest social networking website in the world as it overtook search giants Google and Yahoo and became the most visited website in the US. Its downfall started with the end of google’s advertising partnership in 2009 when its revenue fell below Twitter and Facebook and other competitors.
However, this could not end the lookout for adding songs to the profile of the users. Few dating sites like Hinge still allow users to add songs to their profiles. If the feature is released more publicly then it may surely return to the popular mainstream social media platforms as it was during the Myspace era.
