Instagram introduce effects that move to the music

Instagram’s new AR Music tool allows designers to get creative and musicians to promote their music in new ways.

Instagram are adding tools within their Spark AR app to help designers create filters in Instagram Stories that react to the music.


Ellie Goulding’s team dropped a new Instagram effect to help promote her new track here.

To create an effect that responds to music, you can either import and use your own legally licensed music files or you can let people pick a song they like from the thousands of free tracks in Instagram’s music library. This feature is available for Android users today and will be coming to iOS soon.
