GIF’s gone kaput

Over the weekend, if you’ve been trying to add GIF stickers to your Instagram Stories and couldn’t find it or thought something’s wrong with the app, well you’re not missing out as we thought the same. But no, Instagram’s working fine as there are no reports of downtime and you can actually find the GIF feature hidden, just swipe to the recent tab, though no stickers will ever load, trending or with any search.

GIF Stickers & Type Mode in Instagram Stories

Instagram ended 2017 by releasing features to make photo sharing more organized, memorable, and live/interactive: stories highlights and stories archive, the ability to follow hashtags the way you do with fellow IGers, and sending a live video via direct.

Instagram welcomed 2018 with the introduction of GIF stickers to Instagram Stories, now the photos and videos you add in your story will be even more expressive and fun or animated to look at, of course nothing too fancy but a welcome feature.
