Instagram to support text stories and new stories screenshot notification!

Let us know on Twitter if you like these new Instagram features and join our Telegram channel for fast posts and news notifications.

Facebook has still not given any stats on Stories, and I doubt it'll receive as much use Instagram and Snapchat just by a shift to desktops. This feature is said to be under testing and that it will be rolled out to all the users globally in the coming weeks.

First pointed out by TNW, "Type" is a new option being tested within Instagram Stories, which allows you to add text against different gradient backgrounds.

You will find a new option called Type, swiping right in your Instagram feed to open the Camera.

Georgia businesses created 83000+ jobs previous year , set employment records
The largest increases occurred in the leisure and hospitality industry, followed by education and health services . Most of the increase occurred in non-durable goods manufacturing , which added 1,200 jobs in December 2017.

On choosing Type from there, users can write the desired text and choose one from the many options for the background color and fancy fonts.

Reports suggest that users will also have the option of using a photo for the background instead of settling for the bright ombre background shown in the video. In addition, WABetaInfo is also reporting that Instagram is allegedly considering a feature where - like Snapchat - users would be notified when people screenshot their story. The first time you take a screenshot while watching a Story, you'll get a pass: Instagram will send you a notification, warning that "the next time you take a screenshot of a Story, the person who posted it will be notified".

Again, this feature is also inspired by Snapchat. Given that Instagram isn't exactly used for instant messaging, we're not sure how useful the feature might be. When Stories launched last March, Facebook users saw a number of interface changes to promote it - from ghost versions of their friends who weren't uploading Facebook stories to Facebook adding a dedicated stories viewing tab on both mobile and desktop versions. However, this is the first time it has been applied to Instagram Stories. Already, Instagram sends screenshot alerts for the direct messages, so it is not surprising to see the same make its way to Stories.
