Instagram has just introduced a new fun way for you to reply with photos and videos. The next time your friend sends you a post on Instagram Direct, you can reply to that photo or video with a photo or video of your own.
With the update, just tap on the “reply” button on the shared post in Direct to open the camera. Instagram will turn the post you are replying to into a sticker, so pose with the sticker, snap and send the reply. This makes it easier for your friend to identify which post you are replying to, and allows you to unleash your creativity to create images like the one below.
You can also turn the photo into a split-screen by tapping on the sticker. To make things even fun, you can also do things like paint a mustache on your friend’s selfie, or add some doodles to your reply.
The update is available as part of Instagram version 10.34 and above for Instagram for Android and iOS.
