FAQs About Adding Spotify Music to Instagram Story

Still have problems with adding Spotify music to Instagram Story? Also go through the following FAQs to see if they can help.

Q1: Can I Share Spotify to Instagram Story on PC?

A: Some people are wondering whether it is possible to share a song from Spotify to Instagram Story on Windows or Mac computers. I'm afraid that this feature is not yet realized on the desktop. If you often use Instagram or Spotify on your computer, you'll be aware of these scenarios.

• If you log in to your account on Instagram on the computer, you'll find that it only enables users to create a new post with photos or videos uploaded from their desktop to Instagram. Thus, there is no way to create your Instagram Story on PC, let alone share Spotify Music.
• If you log in to your Spotify account on the desktop, you'll also be frustrated that it cannot share a single song to any applications or website, but copy the link to the song.

That's because the Instagram application is now only available on mobiles, without an official program released for desktops. On PC, you are only able to access Instagram using its web platform. However, the web-based Instagram platform only supports browsing posts, videos, Instagram Stories, and doing some simple interactions with others like sending messages, leaving comments, and so on. If you desire to create posts, upload Instagram Stories, or go live with IGTV, you can only switch to Instagram apps on mobiles to help.
