Instagram's 'Type' mode is coming to your smartphone!

 

Popular social media Instagram is releasing a new feature for its stories, called 'Type', and it brings to the table the ability to type (what a surprise!) in various styles. The new feature was already available in some regions, but with Instragram's latest update it will be released worldwide.

What is different about the new feature is it requires absolutely no images whatsoever, all the magic is done using words instead. You can use different new fonts and styles to express what you felt right after you ate that delicious mac-and-cheese, or share your new favorite, life changing quote with your followers, in your story. The new styles can also be used regular posts as well, pictures and videos alike. Keep in mind 'Type' posts are a part of your story and as such disappear after 24 hours.

'Type' joins the option to add GIFs as the latest improvements to the Story feature of Instragram.
