You Can Now Use GIFs On Instagram

Plus a sneak peek at a future update!

GIFs are making their way over to Instagram stories!

The popular photo-sharing app added the addition of animated GIF stickers to stories in an update rolling out to Apple and Android phones shortly. Instagram has teamed up to make this happen with GIF powerhouse Giphy in order for users to decorate their pics with animated stickers.

To find the animated stickers, look for the “GIF” option in the stickers menu. There, you can search for the specific GIF you want or scroll through all the options!

In addition to this update, Instagram also announced that it will let users upload videos and photos of any size to the story with no changes! You can now post all the horizontal photos you want with no worries. Although we’re not sure exactly when that update is arriving, Instagram said it would be here in “coming weeks.”
