Instagram may soon introduce Facebook-like reactions in Stories
Facebook is hard at work on making Instagram even more engaging that it is today by bringing new features and improvements on a monthly basis. We've already reported about a couple of nifty features that Instagram is currently testing, but we've just learned that there's another one Facebook plans to introduce in the future.

It appears that the option to react to Stories in Instagram will be available to everyone soon if testing goes well and feedback is positive. Some of you may already be able to use these Facebook-like reactions since they are being tested live among Instagram users in various countries.

Still, these reactions are not yet available to everyone, and it's yet unclear if Facebook is testing them on the iOS platform as well. However, we did notice that there are six available reactions that can be used in Stories: applause, laugh, heart eyes, face with open mouth, crying, and fire.

These Facebook-like reactions are included in the latest stable Instagram version (54.0.0.14.82), but they don't show for everyone yet since they're enabled via a server-side update.

One nifty feature that Androids don't have is the Margin feature in Stories that's so far can only be used in iOS devices
