Starting today, Instagram Stories photo and video replies come to the popular mobile native app. When friends post Instagram Stories, followers can now reply with a picture or video of their own. 

New Instagram Stories Photo and Video Replies Debut

Instagram states it is introducing the feature to make the platform more fun to use and interactive. Users can reply with an image or video simply by tapping on the new camera button while viewing a story. Users can also opt to access creative tools within the camera, which include face filters, stickers, and Rewind. Additionally, replies to Stories include a sticker of those Stories users are able to move and resize.

“When a friend replies to your story with a photo or a video, you’ll see it in your inbox. You can tap to view it and also see a sticker of the original story that’s only visible to you. As with disappearing photos and videos in Direct, your friends will know when you’ve taken a screenshot or replayed a reply,” Instagram explains on its official blog.

The social app also states it is working on more ways to make its platform fun, particularly in Direct. Instagram says its latest update launching today is “just of the ways” it’s working to improve visual conversations.

To use the new Stories photo and video replies, simply update to the latest iteration, version 10.28 for Android or iOS, available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
