On a more wider scale, Instagram is crucial for selling products for businesses. In the next few weeks, you'll also be able to upload any size of photo or video. You'll now be able to add moving sparkles, word art, or accessories like hats and sunglasses to your story, overlaid on photos, videos, or Boomerangs.

Thanks to the partnership with Giphy, Instagram users can now add amusing GIF stickers to their public and private stories. You can look through all the animated stickers available - powered by GIPHY, of course - or you can search for specific categories. Tap that option and then you'll be able to search for a specific sticker or see which GIF stickers are now trending among Instagram users.

Instagram has launched a new "gif stickers" feature which will let users add "vibrant, animated" images to their photos.

Besides that, Instagram announced that stories will no longer be annoyingly locked in portrait mode. You will find "GIFs" option too, click on it to add GIF to your story. Searching for "Effects" will return results of stickers that you can use to enhance the ambience in your story.

In order to check out the new features, make sure your Instagram app is up-to-date.

Also last week, WABetaInfo, a blog exclusively dedicated to WhatsApp breaking news spotted a new feature that will notify you when someone takes a screenshot of your story. There's also the option of typing for "Peekers" in the Instagram GIF search option, which will show stickers that pop up and disappear.
