Instagram Introduces Type Mode for Text-Based Stories
Instagram continues to build on its popular stories feature with an update geared toward text-only stories.
Now stories can be published without a photo or video. Type mode allows users to create messages using a variety of typefaces and backgrounds.
Type mode can be accessed from the camera screen with an option under the record button reading “Type.” Simply select type mode and write a message.
From there, different text styles can be selected from the top of the screen. Text styles include options such as “Modern,” “Neon,” “Typewriter,” and “Strong.” Specific words in the message can be highlighted for added emphasis.
