Are you thrilled about the upcoming new features that Instagram Stories are promised to be supplemented with? Yes, we, too. They do really sound attractive! The brand new features may be of a great benefit not only to ordinary Instagram users but also business profile owners. And if you are still unaware particularly what Story features are likely to be rolled out to Insta users, we have dug out them and are ready to present to your attention. Check them out!
Text-Only “Type” Posts
The first innovation Instagram is testing for its Stories now, is the “Type”. This is a text-only posting option that will be found right by the side of Boomerang, Hands-Free and Live options at the screen bottom. Choosing this option, the user can create a Story by simply typing what he wants (his caption). There will be four font types available each with a respective background color. These are Modern (pink), Typewriter (typewriter machine grey), Strong (black), and Neon (turquoise, purple, green, grey). Once confirmed, the feature is expected to have expanded options of background, font, and customization.
The “Type” feature is sure to bring much personality to Instagram stories. Businesses and brands, meanwhile, will have better conditions for making announcements, share with coupon codes or make special offers.
Reposting Other’s Stories
Another fantastic new feature of Instagram Stories we are most likely to see in the near future is reposting others’ stories you are tagged in. According to the announcement lately made, when making a story and mentioning others in it, you’ll be instantly notified that they will be allowed to repost your Story for up to twenty-four hours.
From the brands’ point of view, this is definitely a beneficial feature. So, mentioning other users and brands in your story, it will be much likely to be reposted by them. This way you will get exposed to even a larger audience.
Have you always enjoyed the feeling of spying other Instagramers when you screenshot their stories? Well, whether good or bad for you, Instagram is planning to start notifying users when someone screenshots their stories. When you do it for the first time, you get a notification from Instagram with a warning that the next time he/she will be alerted about it. And when you do it for the second time, an alert message will be sent to him/her about you screening a story just made.
Nevertheless, if we think broadly, this can also be used to one’s benefit. For instance, you can track what kind of stories you make are more screenshot by your followers, and optimize them for the future.
Giphy Library Added to Stories
A Giphy integration into Instagram Stories has been tested for around some time. If you have the opportunity to add emojis, hashtags, polls and location stickers to your stories, Instagram wants to make it real to also add gif-like stickers. A wide library of most diverse and captivating Giphy stickers is expected to be added in a while.
So, all these features really excite, yet Instagram has yet spread only rumors about their incorporation into Stories. It’s already definite, that Instagram intends to pay special attention to Stories, and the tests of these features have yet shown good results. Let’s hope we’ll soon see them in use.
