Instagram has added a few new features to its Snapchat-inspired Stories.
In a nod to sharing, you can now include Mentions of other users in your Stories
To add a mention, you type @ followed by the relevant username. Your friend's username will then appear underlined in the story. Users tapping the Mention will be taken to their profile.
And if you feature in a Mention, you'll receive a notification in Direct.
The second update sees Boomerang, Instagram's looping video feature, come to Stories.
Boomerang can now be recorded using the Stories camera, and shared directly.
