You Can Now Reply to Stories with Photos and Videos in Instagram

You Can Now Reply to Stories with Photos and Videos in Instagram”

Instagram's rapid fire updates to its Stories feature continues today with the added ability to respond to individual stories with photos, videos, and Boomerangs.

The replies feature also lets you use a new sticker that actually contains the original Story you're replying to, which can be resized and positioned anywhere in your frame.

Instagram is billing the new feature as a way to "be even more fun and playful when you respond to friends", but it also stands to be a very good way to drive a whole lot more people to its less popular Snapchat clone.

Capture a photo and update it with as many creative tools as you please.

"When a friend replies to your story with a photo or a video, you'll see it in your inbox".

Not Stories, but its other Snapchat clone: Direct (that's the name for Instagram's disappearing messages, for those keeping track). Instead of scrolling through emojis to find the ideal expression, tap the camera button and make things extra personal by using your own face.

The update is being rolled out to Instagram users worldwide today.

And yes, your friends will know when you've taken a screenshot of their reply. Photo and video replies will be highlighted in blue and will disappear once you have viewed them.

The updates are available as part of Instagram version 10.28 and above for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
