Instagram Just Launched a New Feature and We’re Obsessed
If you thought you were already an Instagram addict (guilty!), get ready to reach a whole new level of obsession. The photo and video sharing app (which now has a whopping 600 million plus users) has just launched a new feature that we predict will see us spending even more time on the social media platform.
Say hello to Instagram Stickers—the tech giant’s answer to Snapchat geofilters—which allows you to add location names, time, weather, and emojis to your Stories. If that doesn’t make posting on Insta a million times more fun, then the new holiday-themed stickers (think gingerbread men, snow globes, and novelty Christmas jumpers) and candy cane paint brush will. The best part? You can include as many stickers as you like, change the styles, move them around, and make them bigger or smaller.
But wait, there’s more—in excellent news for the musicians, personal trainers, and artists of the world showcasing their talent on the platform, Instagram has also launched a new ‘Hands-Free’ option so you now start recording a video with just one tap—genius.
And judging by the company’s statement made to TechCrunch, there could be some more exciting update in the near future. “We’re working on more creative tools that will launch over the coming months to give our community more fun and versatile options,” a spokesperson said.
