Instagram may be dominated with photos that are laden with filters, but the Sounds app turns social platforms into places to share more kinds of content to delight your senses. The app connects to music content providers like Soundcloud, iTunes and Spotify, so that songs can be shared on Snapchat and Instagram.

Within the Sounds app, the library can be browsed for a specific song selection. Rather than being shared as a video clip with sound, the Sounds app displays static album art image instead. Since there's a limit to the amount of audio that can be shared on these social platforms, the app lets users highlight a favorite 15-second clip. This is an easy way for music lovers and record labels to share great finds across social platforms, without much effort required on their part.
