Meta-owned social media app Instagram is rolling out a feature which will allow users to add song lyrics when editing their Reels, just like they can on Stories.

Instagram head Adam Mosseri and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement via their channels on the app. "Rolling out the option to add song lyrics to your Instagram Reels, just like you can on Stories," Zuckerberg said.

"We’ve seen people manually add lyrics to reels, so hope this makes it easier to use music to express yourself. Working on more updates to get creative on reels, stay tuned," Mosseri wrote.

Meanwhile, Instagram is reportedly working on a new feature called ‘AI friend’ that lets users make their very own customisable AI-powered imaginary friend.

According to a report in TechCrunch, the feature was spotted by researcher Alessandro Paluzzi. Instagram users would be able to chat with the AI to “answer questions, talk through any challenges, brainstorm ideas and much more,” according to screenshots of the feature shared on X, formerly Twitter.

In September, Meta Platforms Inc. at its Connect 2023 event announced that it is introducing artificial intelligence (AI) features to its apps.

Customized sticker creation, image editing and a slew of celebrity-faced chatbot characters – all infused with generative AI – are coming to Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp, the company said.

“Advances in AI allow us to create different AI personas to help us get different things done.” Meta Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said during his keynote speech, as per Bloomberg.

"AI is enabling new forms of connection and expression, thanks to the power of generative technologies. And today at Connect, we introduced you to new AI experiences and features that can enhance your connections with others – and give you the tools to be more creative, expressive, and productive," Meta said in a statement.
