Why I does nota have the music sticker on Instagram Stories?

Instagram announced this functionality on June 28 but even today almost two months later this functionality is not available to all users of Instagram.

The sticker of the music may not appear to you because this tool is not yet available in your country, Instagram announcement that only some countries Will have this functionality and then partially would be releasing the rest. So you may not be in one of the countries that have this functionality and therefore you can not use it.

Another aspect to consider to know why you do not get the music sticker is the version of the application you have installed. This new functionality is released from the version N. 51 of Instagram, so you should check what version you have installed on your phone and if you have a lower you must update the APP.

If after upgrading you do not get the music stickers you can try deleting the cache of the application, this is done from the settings menu, you must look for the list of applications select "Instagram" and click "Delete Data Cache "

I have two accounts of Instagram and only in one appears the music sticker

This behavior is very common in the operation of Instagram, many times users who have two accounts report this problem with this and several other features.

If you have two accounts and one works and the other does not, there are a number of steps you can follow to fix it.

1) Log in with your secondary account where the music sticker works
2) Create a storie with the music sticker and publish it
3) Put your cell phone in airplane mode and turn off the WIFI if you are connected to a network, change to your main account (which does not work the questions)
4) Create a storie with your main account and in the recently used stickers will appear the music sticker
5) Publish it in airplane mode
6) Turn off the airplane mode
7) The Storie with the music will have been published and you can use the sticker in your stories.

I hope it works!
