Instagram is expanding it’s Story feature today with several new additions. And some of these copy Snapchat a bit, which comes as no surprise. However, they have Instagram take on them. Stickers are here, and they are festive for the holidays–featuring a Menorah and Christmas Tree, along with several others. I am expecting that more of them come with time.

You can also tag your location with a sticker; this works a bit different¬†from Snapchat. As it pulls up the standard location tag for a post on the platform–this gives you a bit more preciseness. Time and weather can be added to an image as well. These stickers can be resized or spun around. Even better if you tap on them, the¬†stickers will change to a different design.

All of this lets you customize the Story. You can also save an entire story now to your camera roll. Last but not least, Instagram has a hands-free mode for recording video now as well.
