Instagram on Thursday has introduced a new Type mode to its platform. The feature will allow users to share their thoughts in form of text without attaching a picture or a video to the background. It is worth noting, that the feature is available for both the iOS and Android platforms.
To use the new feature, one will have to open their camera in the Instagram stories and switch to the Type mode, which can be found at the bottom next to the other options – Live, Normal, Boomerang, Superzoom, Rewind and Hands-free.

Simply tap on the screen, and you are ready to type your thoughts. At the bottom lift, one will find a circle dot, to change the best suitable colour of the background, while the front styles can be changed form the top. Like any other story, the type stories will also disappear from the user’s profile after 24 hours.
To recall, Instagram has also added a new feature, which now gives users the ability to check other person’s last active time with the new ability known as ‘Last Activity Status’. The feature is similar to what we have seen in WhatsApp and Messenger and it should be rolled out to everyone on Instagram soon.
