It's only been a few days since Meta announced the new feature, but many users have been complaining on social media about their Instagram Notes music not working.

The inability to add music to Instagram Notes has left many users feeling disappointed. There could be various reasons behind it, but we are just guessing here since there is no official update on the situation from Meta.

Why is Instagram Notes music not working?

If Instagram Notes music not working for you, there could be various reasons for this.

One reason some users may face challenges when adding music to their Notes is that the feature is not available everywhere.

Currently, Instagram Notes is only accessible in Europe, Japan, and most users in the United States. If you're outside these regions, you might not have access to the music option in Instagram Notes.

But if you are a resident in one of these regions, there are two more things to look out for.

    It’s working on one of my accounts but not the other. Additionally, instagram doesn’t give me an option to update so I’m guessing I already have all the latest updates. Yet, it still doesn’t work.

      I have the same problem it works on one account but not my other even if I use another phone still the same problem so it must be an account problem not device or app related
