Because gifts and good foods are just not enough to spread the holiday cheer around…
You’ve used Boomerang to make your stories more interesting and it was fun while it lasted, but you’re bored now. Never mind, Instagram has new ways to keep the ball rolling. Since Christmas is around the corner and festive season has just begun, to help you spread the yuletide cheer, they launched new stickers and hands-free camera option to make Instagram stories more fun.
- Holiday Stickers
This Tuesday, Instagram released some coolest holiday stickers. You can add them to your videos and photos. Like Snapchat, these Instagram stories will disappear after 24 hours. Other than holiday-themed stickers that rope in dreidels, candy canes, snowmen and cupcakes, Instagram gives you access to a plethora of stickers to suit your mood and personality.
- Drawing Tool
If the stickers are just not enough, you can use the candy cane brush to create fun stuff for your followers. New holiday-themed drawing tools will help you spice up your Instagram stories.
- Location Sticker
Rather than adding locations to individual photographs, you can simply add location stickers now! As soon as you take a video or a picture, just hit the ‘new location stickers’ button lying next to the drawing tools and text menu. Click on the smiley face to access customizable stickers displaying time, surrounding weather condition and your current location.
- Hands-Free Camera
If you’d experienced problems while recording your performances earlier, you’ll be thrilled to know that Instagram has just launched its hands-free camera. You can access this option in the format picker. Using this feature, you can record your videos with a single tap. So, the next time when you decorate your Christmas tree, build a snowman or play your guitar, you don’t have to press and hold the camera button for a long time. You can easily record your performances single-handedly.
So add as many stickers as you want and keep tapping the video button to capture your festive cheers. Use the brand new features to make your Instagram stories more fun.
