It was through a tweet by Jane Manchun Wong, the photos sharing application is testing it's latest feature where the user can react to the stories of other users.
Instagram today announced that it would release an Instagram video chat feature. Spotify app users will be able to share a sticker of a song they're listening to on Stories, while GoPro users will be able to share footage shot on their GoPro. Instagram's announcement says "creative effects from your favorite accounts are coming soon, including Ariana Grande, Baby Ariel, Liza Koshy, Vogue, and Buzzfeed", but doesn't give a specific launch date just yet.
Instagram is rolling out a slew of new features to bring Stories and chats to the next level.
There's going to be a new camera icon at the top of a Direct thread which when tapped will start the video chat. But users said they also want to engage in real-time video sessions in smaller, private groups.
Video chats can also be minimised so users can continue browsing the app while chatting.
Video chat is another new feature, that ties into the Live video option.

Whatsapp is also getting group video calls. Explore is still personalized for you, but the content is now organized into topic channels so you can browse across your interests and go deeper on any area you'd like. No, this feature is not for muting audio or video, instead it will allow users to mute posts from certain profiles in their feed, without having to unfollow them.
Also being rolled out for Instagram are new augmented reality camera effects.
Facebook is also adding a Watch Party feature, which means you can watch and comment on videos in realtime with your friends. This is the page that is personalized for every user to discover new people and accounts to follow.
Recent, Instagram announced that soon users will be able to store their data just like Facebook.
While now archive posts (images and videos) for Instagram Stories are available in the form of a list with date tags, Instagram is reportedly looking to change the UI, just a bit, to help users arrange the archive better.
Instagram will also add AR camera effects that were brought to Facebook a year ago. If you find a topic you like, you can see related hashtags. I know you all love stickers!
