Tips to add and find music for Instagram videos:

During the upload process to the main Instagram feed, Instagram allows you to crop a video and add filters to it. Instagram does not offer to add music to it. It means we need to add music to your video using another app like Spotify, save it and then upload this video on Instagram. Technically, we can use any song from Spotify or any other music service but your video may be flagged for copyright. The safest option is to use free music sites that are available online.
