Instagram gif update

Words by Tara Smith

From dancing cats to flying cheeseburgers.

Changes are afoot at Instagram HQ.

The app has announced a brand new GIF option for Instagram stories, a move which will change our once mediocre stories forever.

As part of the latest update, the new feature will unlock thousands of stickers via GIPHY, from dancing cats to flying cheeseburgers.

The GIPHY library will constantly evolve and expand to fit user needs.

On top of that, you can now add video and photos of any size to your story, which previously only supported a portrait layout.

The update is available now on iOS and Android devices.
