There’s a new Saved music feature on Instagram.

It allows you to save your favorite songs and audio so you don’t have to look for them all the time.

It’s like an Audio Library or a Playlist that you can create.

This feature is awesome if you want to use the songs you hear when you’re watching other people’s Reels, or you like using the same songs to keep the same vibes in your videos.

You might have seen this new feature in your Instagram Reels already, but you might not be too sure how to use it.

You can see this new Saved folder under the Music option:

You have to use another way to create your own Saved music folder.

1. Find a Reel with a Song you like

First, find someone’s Reels with a song you like.

It doesn’t have to be an actual song. It can be someone’s original audio. Or an audio they found on TikTok or recorded themselves.
