Instagram continuously takes efforts to add new features to their app. One of such feature is Instagram music. I saw many stories from my favorite Instagram users adding music to their Instagram stories but it always gave me an error saying “Instagram Music isn’t Available in Your Region”.

Instagram has rolled out this feature to very few countries such as the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, and Sweden etc.
I wanted to try this feature on my Instagram stories and luckily I found a workaround that lets you do this. In this post, I will explain how to fix “Instagram Music Isn’t Available in Your Region” error.
Fix: Instagram Music Isn’t Available in Your Region:
To get started with the workaround, the first thing you need to do is to uninstall the current Instagram app from your device. We will be installing the app again. We are uninstalling the app because when you login into Instagram for the first time it logs your current country. So go ahead and uninstall the current Instagram app.
Now that you have successfully uninstalled the app, the next thing to do is to install the VPN ( Virtual Private Network). You can use any paid or Free VPN. We are using a VPN because it lets you change the server location. From the VPN setting, select any of the above countries as your server location.
Once you set up the VPN, go to Play Store and install the Instagram app again and log in using your username and password. This time the Instagram app will log your location as the VPN server location.
Hurray! you are all set to use the Instagram music feature even if you are not from abovementioned countries.
Now open the Instagram app, tap on the add story button. Look at the bottom of the screen, you should see the “Music” option. Start recording the video by taping on capture button and then choose your favorite music from the Instagram music library. It allows you to add only 15 seconds of music. You can adjust the slider to select the specific part of music.

It also allows you to add music to your photos. Capture or choose the photo from your photo library, tap on sticker icon and select a piece of music.
This workaround works because we virtually change our location with help of VPN and when we install a new Instagram app, it logs our virtual location.
If you are a fan of Instagram music just like me, you should try this method out to see this workaround in action. Fix the Instagram Music Isnt Available in Your Region error with this small trick and enjoy the feature that is not available in you country.
