You Can Now Reply to Stories with Photos and Videos in Instagram

The update is the latest unveiled by the Facebook-owned app that has a striking similarity to rival Snapchat, which also allows users to reply to Stories with a photo or video as well as text. You can also use stickers from the original story and tailor them in terms of size and position.

These rapid-fire Instagram updates just keep making the photo-sharing app better and better. This means that they can respond to a story by either sending a selfie or a Boomerang.

But if the amount of people using Instagram to promote their Snapchat are to be considered, the race is far but won.

Instagram is improving its Stories feature once again. Similar to Instagram Direct's disappearing photos and videos, your friends will be notified if you take a screenshot or replay their response.




With this new feature, Users can now reply to Stories with a photo or video by tapping the camera button while watching one. If there is no Update button to be seen, the most recent version is already on the device you're working with.

This may not seem like a huge feature update, but it's likely to help increase the conversational engagement of Stories considerably. Android users have an extra option outside of Google Play.

Recently, many Instagram users were affected by a bug that deleted their accounts.

It's time to get creative, Instagrammers. Users will be able to resize as pictured in the screenshots above and below. Instagram is yet to comment on the issue.
