In August, Instagram added their “new” disappearing photo feature called Stories which is pretty similar to Snapchat. The only thing that was different is that you couldn’t add stickers to Instagram stories. Well that has changed, with Instagram’s newest update you can now add stickers to your disappearing photos.

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. To learn more about today’s updates, check out help.instagram.com. 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 Play.
