Instagram has launched yet another feature to their Stories; the use of GIFs. Users can choose from more then 100,000 of them, and can search for them through GIPHY. You can add GIFs to either a photo or video in your story. Users also have the option to send their GIF story directly to another user in a message. For more details on how to use the feature, check out their help center.
Instagram will also be launching even more features to Stories:
In the coming weeks, we’re also rolling out the ability to upload photos and videos of any size to your story — so you never have to lose part of a photo or cut a friend out of a group video. When you upload a photo or video, pinch to share it in its original dimensions, whether it’s square, portrait or landscape. Any extra room will be filled with a custom color gradient that matches what you’ve shared.
