Instagram users can now reply to stories with own photos and videos
Instagram has released a new update to its app that allow users to reply to Stories with their recorded video or photo.
Instagram Stories is a feature that allows users to tell the story of their day with videos and photos collated in a chronological order.
On a blog post, Instagram said "Today's update is just one of the ways we're working to make Direct the best place to have fun, visual conversations with friends on Instagram,"
"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."
The video reply will work same way as normal Story posts — text, stickers, and other bells and whistles go over the image.
The reply will have a sticker showing the original Story image, so you know which part of your Story they’re replying to.
The Video reply update unveiled today is quite similar to Snapchat Stories which equally allow users to reply to Stories with a photo or video as well as text.
The Instagram update is now available for download.
