If you’re one one of the 600 million monthly active users on Instagram, by now you would have already noticed the roll out of a few new features with the latest update. Stories received a major update with the addition of stickers.  A feature that looks very similar to Snapchat’s geofilters. Instagram also included the ability to record video handsfree. Like Snapchat’s geofilters, stickers can be used on any photo by using your location. For added convenience, Instagram is also improving how stories are saved to your phone. The app will now save stories as a single video instead of a series of short clips.
