Instagram Stories launches new Stickers for locations, emoji, and seasons
Instagram introduced today a set of tools to help you add context and creativity to your story. Now you have a new way to turn any moment into something you want to share with your friends and followers.
No matter where you are or what you’re up to, you can add context to your story with stickers. After you’ve taken a photo or video, you’ll see a new sticker’s button next to the text and drawing tools. Tap the smiley face to find customizable stickers for weather, the current time and even your location.
You can make sticker easy, move them around, make them bigger or smaller and choose from different styles to match your mood.
There a set of holiday stickers too, available for the next few weeks.
Instagram introduced a new option ‘Hands-Free’, lets you start recording a video with just one tap. Whether you’re playing a guitar solo, building a snowman, there’s no need to press and hold.
Now in this update, you can add as much text to your photo or video as you’d like. Simply keep tapping the text button to add more. Choose between left, center, and right justified text, and a new slider lets you adjust size easily with automatic text wrap.
Finally, on iOS, you can now save your entire story from the past 24 hours to your camera roll as a single video.
These updates for Instagram Stories are available as part of Instagram version 10.3 available for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
