Instagram’s New ‘Type’ Feature Allows You To Write Different Fonts In ‘Stories’
By Izza Sofia, 02 Feb 2018
Instagram has started rolling out a new feature for ‘Stories’ called ‘Type’. It allows you to express your feelings using creative text styles and backgrounds.
To add as much expression as possible, users can choose from colorful, customizable backgrounds and different text styles, including a neon font. These same styles can be used to overlay a photo or video.
Instagram said that it hopes the feature will let people write their thoughts with less worry about what they say. “Now, you can turn your most random thoughts into something colorful and expressive,” it mentioned in a blog post.
“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 updates arrive in the latest version of the app, which is currently being pushed out to iOS and Android users.
