  1. Is this a new feature to ingrain in the Instagram DNA? Their API already empowers music things (and more!) like how Compmix allows for Instagram elements to be used in sync with Soundcloud tracks. I’m guessing this @music thing is a friendly acknowledgement of the music side that has provided great content for Instagram? I guess in time we’ll see how it grows.
