6 Coolest Instagram Story Features in 2019

Instagram comes with a lot of exciting features. Most of the users don’t know about them as they are hidden for naked-eye and demand particular gestures for use. The best options are mentioned over here for you. Step up your Instagram game by trying these excellent tips and tricks.

1. Make a story from more than one pictures

If you think you can post only one image on your Instagram story, you are wrong. It is possible to post multiple photos in at one time in a story. You need to have the desired pictures in the camera roll app and need to copy from there though. Go to Instagram and tap twice on your story and paste them over there. For adjusting the position and size, ideally, you need to use more than one fingers also.

2. Access different fonts

If you don’t wish to use the same five fonts offered in the story, you can try expanding the font library. There are a few apps such as Canva and Unfold that allows editing and using the pre-installed text collection. For using a particular font, you need to airdrop the OTF format file in your device and access it through the app known as Open.  These options are not in-built, though. You will have to add text from outside of the Instagram app.

3. Choose an ideal soundtrack

You can let others know what podcasts or songs you are listening to, these days, by sharing them on your stories. You can either share your favorite audio file directly through integrated Instagram music or Spotify. If you don’t know how to share songs through Spotify, pick any song that you want to share, find the share option given with the song or playlist, and tap on it. You will see various apps for sharing, choose the Instagram stories option from there. The selected song will appear in your story, and you can post it accordingly.

4. Explore more colors

Different colors make your Instagram stories look appealing and engaging. You can choose different color options for doodles and text from time to time. For that, you need to tap and hold any of the given colors to see the bigger color bar section. The eyedropper tool will make things easier for you as well.

5. Use interactive stickers

Instagram provides an exclusive interactive feature in the sticker section now and then. As the two-option poll became popular, they came up with emoji slider, four-option quiz, and the QnA box. These stickers are perfect for getting feedback or knowing your followers well. If you have a lot of followers and want to add more, you can try this trick to boost your reach and connect with followers correctly.

6. Use third-party apps

Apps like Canva and Unfold are already discussed over here for experimenting with fonts. But, there are a lot more apps in the market that can make your stories more beautiful, exciting, and engaging. Storyluxe is one such app that offers various great template while Photoshop Mix is ideal too. You can create perfect-sized and high-quality content for Instagram through your smartphone, with the use of these third-party apps.

All in all, these tips and tricks are going to help your boost your Instagram reach and make you stand from others for sure!
