instagram introduces photo and video replies to stories

instagram users are now able to reply to stories with a photo or a video. be it a face-filtered selfie or energetic boomerang, the latest feature creates an even more fun and playful way to respond to friends and followers. by tapping the new camera button whilst watching a story, instagrammers can use any creative tools to reply with a photo or video. furthermore, a sticker of the original story, which can be moved and resized, is included in the messages. once notified in the inbox, users can view the reply, with friends knowing when screenshots are taken or replays activated.


with over 1 million instagram followers – now actually at over 1.2 million – we are always excited by the latest developments of the social media app. for the latest and best in architecture, design, art, and technology, follow designboom’s instagram account here.

instagram stories’ latest update aims to make the app’s ‘direct’ section ‘the best place to have fun, visual conversations with friends’. it follows the announcement of the ‘carousel’ feature, which was launched back in february 2017 and enabled users to share a mix of up to 10 photos and videos in a single post. these additions are just some of ways in which the company is broadening its social services so be sure to follow our official account here.
