After launching live video and disappearing photos and videos to their Stories feature in November, Instagram has introduced more features to further compete with Snapchat. According to a post on their blog, Instagram is rolling out "tools to help you add context and creativity to your story."

The primary update is the addition of stickers to Instagram Stories, which include customizable tags for date, weather, and location. People watching your story will be able to learn more about your tagged location by tapping on the sticker. Instagram has also introduced a "Hands-Free" option for recording video that allows users to record video with one tap.
