Instagram Stories is now more popular than Snapchat
Figures released recently suggest that Instagram Stories is now more popular than Snapchat, despite the fact that the feature was copied from Snapchat.
In a blog post on Thursday, the Instagram team revealed that more than 200 million people use Instagram Stories everyday.
This is much higher than Snapchat which revealed during its IPO in 2016 that it ended 2016 with 158 million daily users.
Instagram has also introduced some new features to the Stories. They include location specific stickers for those in Chicago, London, Madrid and Tokyo. There’s also the ‘selfie stickers’ which allows users to quickly share their reaction or trade faces with people in their stories.
The update is available on both iOS and Android.
