But before sharing the story on Instagram, just tap on the Stickers symbol, which is located on top.

Instagram made adding GIFs to Stories easy by having them work as stickers. While tapping to add a sticker, you will come across a new Instagram GIF option from now onwards.

Instagram partnered with GIPHY to add animated GIF stickers to Stories, and the (social) world will never be the same again.

For adding a GIPHY GIF sticker, Tap GIF to see trending stickers. This is all based off of Motion Stills, and you will have quick access to all of the tools needed to get your GIF done right. Tap that option and then you'll be able to search for a specific sticker or see which GIF stickers are now trending among Instagram users. From bouncing pizzas to dancing cats, I promise you, they are all there. In the coming weeks, Instagram will be adding the ability to upload videos and photos of any size to a story.

When you upload a photo or video, pinch to share it in its original dimensions, whether it's square, portrait or landscape. Previously, parts of pictures or videos that were too big for stories would be cut off to allow the media to fit. Instagram's next public announcement will be when we find out whether users spend time on the new feature or not. It comes with loads of fonts to choose from, while Instagram automatically selects a background. Because the button is now placed prominently on the virtual keyboard, users might use it more often than when you needed a few more steps to go to the GIF-creating section.

The new GIF making feature lets users record their own GIFs with their phone's cameras - both front and rear camera.
