Instagram has enacted a new function that’s going to kick their stories into gear. 

With the newest Instagram update comes special Gifs!

No, that’s not a typo.


In addition to this upcoming update, you will now be able to add any photo of any size to Instagram Stories, and a matching gradient will be around it. This update will come through in the next few weeks.

This is a cool update, rather than an invasive one like last week’s update, sharing the times that you are active online with members of Instagram that follow you or Direct Message you.


Let’s just hope that Instagram follows this track of cool updates instead.


Amy Cooper is one with the force and the force is with her.
