However, talking about the current updates Instagram is also working on new stickers which are “DM ME” and business promotion stickers. On the other hand, Facebook is also working on a “MOOD” GIF option.
Anyhow, that is not all of the ongoing updates, there are other smaller tests and changes in progress and this is only over a few weeks.

With the new features and tools, you are able to create more impressive and wonderful looking Stories content than you might think.
