Instagram Adds Stickers To Stories With Holiday Cheer

Stories were a huge feature addition to Instagram, not only because the feature was directly ripped off from Snapchat, but because it gave Instagrammers a new way to interact with their followers without cluttering up their carefully curated feed. Instagram’s latest update brings a new addition to the Stories feature: stickers.

The new stickers work like the stickers implementation of other social networks. You can add stickers to your stories to indicate your location, the season, and a variety of other things. You can change their size to make them bigger or smaller, rotate them, and change their location on the screen.

A special holiday brush has been made available for users to draw on their images. The new candy cane brush lets users decorate their images and video with fun candy cane looking lines that are sure to kick up the holiday cheer in their story.

The other big update to Stories for iOS users is that you can now download your entire story from the last 24 hours to your camera roll. This is a great feature for those who want to keep a record of their stories and what they have been posting to them.

If you are interested in learning more you can jump on over to the official Instagram blog to get all of the information on these new features. As well, you can make use of the latest updates now, you just need to go to your app store and update your IG.
