Alright! Grab your phones and get ready because Instagram is rolling out some awesome new features that are about to level up your social media game. They are adding a new comment reply option, and testing star sign-related stickers!
Let's dive in and explore these updates.
First up, let's talk about the new comment reply option.
With this new feature, you can share comments from any public post or Reel to your IG story. And if you are asking yourself why this is familiar, it's because you may have seen it on TikTok.
Here's how it works on IG: When someone makes an interesting comment on your post, you swipe left on it and use the "Share to Story" option. This takes the comment and showcases it in your Instagram Story.
So, Instagram pretty much took note of the level of interaction this option generates on TikTok and made the wise decision to implement it in its app. It's a simple yet powerful way to give your followers a glimpse into the vibrant community around your content.
Now, don't you dare to leave, 'cause we are not done yet.
Instagram is doing us a favor and sparing us the infamous question of "What's your zodiac sign?" as they are testing star-sign-related stickers for Stories.
Who are we kidding, tho'? We love this question (I'm a Virgo, btw).
You can add a touch of celestial magic to your IG Stories by selecting stickers that align with your star sign or just resonate with your mood. Whether you're a fiery Aries or a dreamy Pisces, there's a sticker for everyone to make your Stories shine.
These star-sign stickers are like a playful twist on personal expression. They let you share a bit of your personality and interests with your followers, sparking conversations and connections with those who share your cosmic vibes. It's a small addition that adds a whole lot of charm to your Stories.
What's particularly great is that Instagram is constantly exploring ways to enhance the user experience. They're not just about likes and follows; they're about creating a community where creativity and connection thrive. The comment reply option and star-sign stickers are just the latest examples of how Instagram is all about making your social media journey more engaging and enjoyable!
