If you love using GIFs, you can start adding by using the newly added option.

Instagram has also confirmed that it will soon allow users to add photos or videos of any size to story. So, users will not have to cut a part of photo or video. Any extra room will be filled with a custom color gradient.

See the snapshot below to understand how it will work.


GIF stickers are now available for iOS and Android users. You can update your Instagram app to start using this feature.

Both the options Instagram announced today are interesting. The second option is one I have been waiting for long. While uploading a group photo to Story, it forces to cut few friends out to adjust the size. Ability to upload original size will surely help while posting a group photo.
