[Updated] Instagram Stories music sticker missing / disappeared issue still troubling many

This story is being continuously updated….new updates are being added at the bottom…..

Here’s the crux of this story in a small video:

And here’s the complete story:

Instagram has now come up with a new feature which lets users add lyrics to music stickers. Meaning, one can now display lyrics along with the songs on their Instagram Stories. As logic dictates, music sticker with lyrics will be available only in regions where music stickers are supported.

Users can play with the font and design of the lyrics as well as edit which particular part of the song they wish to play in their Stories. However, these lyrics may not be available for all the songs.



While Instagram has released this new music sticker-related functionality, what about the actual music sticker feature which is either not available in all regions or has been taken away from many who were earlier able to access it?

When does the company plan to shed clarity on what could be causing this?

Few months back, we highlighted this glitch where many instagrammers chimed about music not playing on their Instagram Stories as well as the feature not available for many even months after the rollout. And now it looks like the former issue about missing music stickers has gained heat in past few days.

A humongous number users across social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter can be seen complaining about disappeared or missing music stickers while they were earlier able to use it. Better not confuse this with those who still haven’t received the feature due to regional limitations.

Here are some of the recent reports for you to take a quick glance at:


While the number of affected users is growing with every passing day, sadly we haven’t yet been able to locate an official word from the Facebook-owned company explaining why the feature is suddenly disappearing for people who were earlier using it.

We are in a look out for more information not only regarding this issue , but also regarding when the company plans to make music sticker available to more regions as many are waiting for that as well. Rest assured, we’ll update the story as and when we get hands on new information.

Update 1 (August 05)

Aaand the same old story continues. The number of instagrammers complaining about music stickers going missing has grown enormously over past few weeks. But sadly, we haven’t been able to locate any reason for why the feature is not showing up for those who had it earlier.
