Instagram takes its Snapchat imitation to a new level

Courtesy Of Instagram

Starting on Tuesday, Instagram will introduce eight different filters to their Instagram Stories. Instagram says no. At TechCrunch Disrupt, the company's product head Kevin Weil explained why.

You can also add hashtags to your stories now, via text or with a hashtag sticker. It will enable you to see things fly back in time when you have completed the process to capture that instant - with the touch of a button. Stories, if you'll recall, are a really cool concept that Instagram totally invented and didn't steal, which allow you to share little snippets of your day with your followers. Just tap the "Stickers" icon in the top right of the screen and type the hashtag you want.

Instagram has copied Snapchat's lens feature that applies augmented-reality masks to people's faces.

Brunt warns WBA won't roll over for Chelsea
Courtois added: "We hope to do it at the first attempt". "They were very disappointing, but we were very professional". They are now on 45 with visits to Manchester City and Swansea to come after the Chelsea game.

For now, Instagram does not have sponsored face filters, where advertisers can create their own content. Snapchat's "sponsored lenses" have become a major part of its advertising revenue. As the name implies, dive into the camera by swiping right, then select Rewind from the list of available options. The app's camera now includes a "Rewind" feature that shares videos in reverse.

You'll also see a new eraser brush when using drawing tools.

These updates are a part of Instagram version 10.21 for iOS in the Apple Store and for Android in Google Play. I mean, seriously, chances are your friends on Snapchat are probably on Instagram, too. "Good ideas start in one place, then spread across the entire industry". In fact, the picture-based network will make up 20% of Facebook's domestic mobile revenue this year - up from 15%, last year - eMarketer estimates. "Kudos to Snapchat for being the first to stories, but it's a format and it's going to be adopted across a wide array of platforms".
