Instagram rolls out NYC geostickers for stories

Instagram rolls out NYC geostickers for stories

Facebook is certainly not one to chicken out when it comes to experimenting with new features.

Posts added to Messenger Day are shown in a banner at the top of the app's "Home" tab.

The features of Messenger Day are easy to use and will feel familiar to those who have used Instagram's Stories, WhatsApp Status, or the original Snapchat's Stories feature.

In August, Facebook-owned Instagram debuted Stories, a look-alike of Snapchat's Stories feature.

Users can add more than one geosticker and resize them according to their requirement. Despite the fact that Facebook acquired AR application MSQRD in 2015, there has been no news on whether or not this feature will be coming to Instagram anytime soon.

While the new feature seems interesting, currently, it is being rolled out only in NY and Jakarta.

Geostickers are available for iOS and Android users running the latest version of the app. The new update, which serves as essentially another clone of Snapchat Stories, is meant to provide users a means to live in the now with various filters that share custom photos and videos and disappears after 24 hours.

Similar to Snapchat Stories, you can let your creativity run lose here.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, launched a raft of products previous year in hopes of solidifying its place in the market.

"You may see other stickers appear when you're visiting select neighbourhoods and landmarks - each one is created to match the vibe of the location it represents", the blog added.

Messenger is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. So, if you want to post sultry photos or lay down for people you're into without sharing them with your friends, family, colleagues, then this is the way to do it.

To use the new Messenger Day feature you can tap the camera icon or the "Add to your day" button at the top of your Messenger app inbox.

After taking a photo or video in a chat, users can also add it to their Day.

Also, posts are visible to everyone.

With Facebook's more than 1 billion daily users, Messenger Day could hit the newly public Snapchat even harder. And if you share something to your Day that you have second-thoughts about, there's also a handy "delete" option. However, there are a couple of additional social elements unique to Messenger Day that you won't find on the others.
