Instagram for iOS adds new ‘Type’ text mode for story creation
Instagram today is further expanding the capabilities of its stories feature.
In a blog post this morning, Instagram has announced a new "Type" mode for stories that lets users share anything on their mind, with no text or video required.. Instagram touts that Type mode allows creators to "turn your most random thoughts into something colorful and expressive."
"Today, we're introducing "Type" mode in stories, a new way to share anything that's on your mind with creative text styles and backgrounds - no photo or video required. From there you, can write out whatever you want and choose from a host of different fonts, backgrounds, and more," said a statement from the company.
The feature is relatively straightforward. You can access the new Type interface by swiping over to the far left when in the camera interface. From there you, can write out whatever you want and choose from a host of different fonts, backgrounds, and more.
When you open the camera, you’ll see “Type” next to “Normal” under the record button.
Tap "Type" and write whatever comes to mind - your favorite lyrics, a silly thought or a random idea - and play with different styles to change the look and feel.
Then, you can pick different background colors, highlight words and phrases or add a background photo.
The new Type fonts and colors aren’t exclusive to text-only posts, though. Instagram says you can also overlay your creations on any photo or video.
