For the people who can’t post enough Stories to Instagram, the app is adding GIF stickers for usage on your photos and videos that go directly into Stories.
When selecting a photo or video to add to a Story, you’ll see many GIF stickers to choose from, like funny faces, a dog with sunglasses, a floating cheeseburger, plus plenty more.
Not only did Instagram introduce GIF stickers, but they also teased the soon-to-be-released ability to change the size of photos inside of Stories. For example, if you have a photo that was taken in landscape, the upload of the photo should no longer cut off the sides, unless you want it to. It’s like when Instagram added this ability to its main feed, bringing more variation in the images you see (not just 1×1 squares).
GIF stickers are rolling out now, and once Instagram makes the photo sizing option available, we’ll let you know.
