6 best free apps to add music to Instagram videos

Last year, Instagram finally added one of the most anticipated features: music. You can now add your favorite tracks to your Instagram stories. What makes the feature interesting is that it brings together most of the popular songs. However, this innovative feature does not extend to conventional Instagram videos. Yes, you cannot add music directly to Instagram videos. For this, you should always rely on third-party video applications.

Most third-party apps today allow you to add custom music to videos. And if you install the right one, you can also find royalty-free music to add to your Instagram videos. Cool, right?

So if you’re looking for cool free apps to add music to Instagram videos, here are some of the best Android apps. Let’s start.

1. FilmoraGo

If you’re looking for a simple app that lets you add music to Instagram videos, the FilmoraGo app is for you.

It’s a bit old, but it has all the essential features you would want on a video editor.

Now, speaking of his music library, luckily it doesn’t disappoint. If you’re bored with the presets, you can also download a few more songs. Or, you can add music from your collection.

The good thing about FilmoraGo is that it keeps things sweet and simple. I love the absolutely clutter-free interface and the clever design.

2. Quik

If you don’t want to spend too much time deciding on the type of music for the video, Quik is the app for you. It brings together several interesting transitions, fonts and music, which is enough to bring out a video.

Using the application is as simple as a walk in the park. You must select one of the available presets, and if you agree with the music and the transition, you are all sorted.

Quik also offers many customization options. For example, you can mute the original sound of the video. Or you can play by combining different transition effects and music.

What I usually do is first select the music for the video by tapping the little music icon. After selecting a song, I select the transition that matches the video, personalize the rest, then save it.

Quik also allows you to add music from your collection.

3. InShot

By far, InShot has been one of the favorite video apps to date. I love the fact that I can edit a video directly from my phone without sacrificing quality.

There is an option to change the color of the video. Second, you can place stickers, watermarks, text labels, and the like in the timeline. That said, you can also trim the video, mute the original volume, edit the image, or speed up the video.

Most importantly, there are several free music tracks that you can use. Just tap the Music> Tracks icon, and all the options will be there for you.

However, the free version of InShot contains ads. To remove them, you can upgrade to the paid version. On the upside, the watermark is removable if you watch an ad for a few seconds.

Note: To make a video look eye-catching, you can download ringtones and add them as soundtracks.

4. VideoShow

VideoShow is another great application that lets you add music to videos. It is a feature-rich application that lets you add music to video and experience different musical effects, themes, and original video transitions.

The interface is simple, although I wouldn’t call it clutter-free. Due to the many options, the interface seems a bit crowded.

Unlike InShot which has only a few music albums, VideoShow brings together a horde of tracks. And believe me, I’m not kidding.

And the story does not end there. Music is separated into genres. This simple function makes it easy to find music. So no more tapping on each track to see if it fits the video at hand.

There are other options such as cropping and playing with the original color of the video. This app is free to download and use.

5. VivaVideo

If VivaShow seems a bit crowded, you should try VivaVideo (see VideoShow vs. VivaVideo). This video editing tool is mainly similar to VideoShow. However, the options and features are laid out aesthetically. This gives it an advantage over other similar applications.

Apart from that, the music options are mostly similar. From classic tunes to popular tunes, you will find everything here. To add a piece of music to your video, tap the Music button and the app will walk you through the rest.

VivaVideo (and even VivaShow) allows you to add your voiceovers, a concept that I particularly like. And the good thing is that you can change the position of the soundtrack on the timeline.

Like its counterpart above, this video editing app also places a watermark in the lower right corner. To remove it, you will need to upgrade to the paid version.

6. Adobe Premiere Rush

Adobe Premiere Rush is for those looking for an application with a neat interface. This opening also brings together some clever features such as models, audio mixing and audio cleaning powered by AI.

However, when it comes to music, you will need to download songs from your collection. On the upside, the neat transitions and the different audio options make this application a must.

Bonus application: Vimeo Create

If you are looking for original effects, great songs and more, you can check out Vimeo Create. This is a freemium app that comes with an excellent music collection.

The only major limitation is that you cannot directly save the video file to your phone’s gallery. For that, you will need to upgrade to the paid version, which costs around $ 27 a month.

Please don’t stop the music

No video is complete without a lively soundtrack. Let it be an incomplete video without sound. So what app will you get? As I mentioned above, I like InShot, especially for its interface. However, I am open to trying VivaVideo as well as Quick more often for our Instagram videos.

You can visit the official Guiding Tech Instagram page to view our daily posts which we often personalize using these apps.
