Digital industry news #2 | Instagram updates photo and video replies to Stories

Favorite Instagram feature became extra awesome! You can reply to stories with a photo or video. From selfies to Boomerangs, now you can be even more fun and playful when you respond to friends. New, visual responses work just like the textual responses and disappearing photos and videos in Direct. Your friends will know if you have taken a screenshot or replayed the video.

Replies with a photo or video include a thumbnail image of the original story, which is visible to the story creator when they view the reply, even if the story itself has already disappeared. The update was released on June 9th and the reply option is available for private accounts only. Big <3 for Instagram, keep it up!
