Get ready, Instagram fiends, because a new Instagram Stories update will take your slideshows to a whole new level. Released on Nov. 10, the Stories update adds two new features, plus a test of a third for some users: You’ll now be able to @mention people and use the Boomerang camera in Stories; additionally, some users (verified accounts only, alas) will now have access to a test letting them include links in Stories. These features might not sound like a whole lot, but, to quote someone much smarter than me, though they be but little, they are fierce. Seriously, you guys: They are so cool.
Boomerang lets you turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected. Now you can easily take a Boomerang right inside Instagram.
Mentions Share who you’re with or who you’re thinking of by mentioning them in your story.
Mentioning people in stories works the same as it does in captions and comments. When you add text to your story, type “@” followed by a username and select the person you’d like to mention. Their username will appear underlined in your story. And when someone taps the mention, they’ll see a pop-up that takes them to that profile.
