Not Available In Your Country
Well, many of us are not aware of how an app is launched in a country. If you are a creator you must be knowing it but if you are not then let me help you. An app created first has to meet all the privacy policies and requirements of the store on which it is to be launched. Not only this, now you have got it certified by the country you want to launch in. And the scenario is the same for each and every new feature.
You need to check if the music label sticker feature is available for your country. If not then, this is the answer to the question ” Why Instagram music is not available in your account?”
The alternate way would be to upgrade your account to a business account or the creator account then there are chances you get the feature in your account or you can use the third-party app for the purpose.
Available In The Country But Not To Your Account

If you are already using the updated version of the app or after updating still you cannot find the music label in the sticker tray then follow the following steps-
- Go to settings
- Search for the apps
- Click on Instagram and force stop
- Now clear the cache and data
- You will be signed out of the app
- Log in again and check
If this doesn’t work then the way left is to uninstall the app and reinstall it from the google play store or the app store.
Cannot Find Music of the Famous Singers
This problem is mostly faced by the business accounts and the only reason for this is the copyright issues. Instagram is very serious about the copyright issues for the platform to do well. So, it won’t allow you to use the music that can cause copyright issues on its platform.
Well, this doesn’t mean you cannot do it. If you still wish to access the feature you can change the business account back to normal or you can make your business account a creator account and access the feature.
What we suggest is in spite of going back to personal accounts make the creator account as there is not much difference in the facilities available to both of them.
