Instagram Stories Get Geostickers, Once Again Aping Snapchat


Photo-sharing app Instagram has once again picked up a Snapchat feature. This time, Instagram has introduced geostickers, a feature that Snapchat has had since August last year with the exact same name. Instagram users, just like on Snapchat, will be now be able to tag images and videos in Instagram Stories with geostickers, letting people know where the photos and videos were taken.

For now, the newly copied Snapchat feature is only available on Instagram Stories in two locations across the world – New York City and Jakarta. There are just city-based stickers at the moment, though more stickers for select neighbourhoods are being added – and the Facebook-owned service says each one of these custom location geostickers is “designed to match the vibe of the location it represents.”

Now when users tap the sticker button in Stories when in these two cities, they will notice location-specific options at the top of the menu and these new geostickers will take viewers to the map of that spot so they can see photos and videos from other users. The feature is available in Instagram v10.11 for Android and iOS.
