Instagram has been making some not-so-subtle changes recently, in an attempt to beat Snapchat and keep down with the kidz.
They've just made another sassy update, allowing users to add stickers to their stories. This follows on from the decision to add text, filters, private stories and let's be real, the decision to even add 'stories' to the app.
The company explained:
"Today, we’re introducing a set of tools to help you add context and creativity to your story: stickers, holiday fun and more. No matter where you are or what you’re up to, you can add context to your story with stickers. After you’ve taken a photo or video, you’ll see a new stickers button next to the text and drawing tools. Tap the smiley face to find customizable stickers for weather, the current time and even your location. It’s easy to make stickers your own: move them around, make them bigger or smaller and choose from different styles to match your mood. And you can add as many stickers as you want to any part of your story. You’ll see a set of holiday stickers available for the next few weeks, and keep an eye out for even more stickers to ring in the new year! You’ll also find three other improvements: a new ‘Hands-Free’ option in the format picker lets you record a video without having to press and hold; you can add as many pieces of text as you’d like to a photo or video; and, on iOS, you can save your entire story to your camera roll as a single video.

These updates for Instagram Stories are available as part of Instagram version 10.3 available for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Pl"
