Instagram Stories updated with photo and video replies

You Can Now Reply to Stories with Photos and Videos in Instagram

Replies will also include a sticker of the story you're replying to that you'll be able to move around and resize at your leisure.

To reply to a story, follow the following steps. The latest Instagram 10.29 update is already rolling out to users and should be available to all in the next couple of days. This means that they can respond to a story by either sending a selfie or a Boomerang. Now using Instagram Stories has become more attractive.

In a bid to improve visual conversations among users through its messaging tool "Direct", photo-sharing app Instagram has added the feature to reply to users" "Stories' with photos or videos. You can tap on that button to get access to all the Instagram camera features and reply the way you want.

"From selfies to Boomerangs, now you can be even more fun and playful when you respond to friends", Instagram wrote in a blog post.

This might not be a huge update but it will surely increase the conversational engagement in Instagram Stories. Instagram is yet to resolve the issue and users continue to be logged out and their profiles appear as "disabled" to friends and followers. All replies in your Direct inbox will be highlighted in blue, so you'll know the difference between a regular message and someone replying to your story.

Replies will land on your inbox, just like regular ones and, given that they're disappearing, you'll get notified when your friends takes a screenshot or hits the reply button.
