Instagram Type Mode lets you post text-only Stories

Instagram

"Now, you can turn your most random thoughts into something colorful and expressive", it wrote in a blog post announcing the change. This key tool enabled people to add texts to their stories, called Type Mode.This new tool enables you to customize Text, Text color, and background color with the tweak of your creativity. The posts disappear after 24 hours.

The updates will be arriving in a new version of the app, being pushed out to iOS and Android users now.

After opening the camera, users will see "Type" next to "Normal" under the record button. I'm sure Facebook wants Instagram to be as versitile as it can be, but straying this far away from the app's flagship feature makes you wonder where the service goes from here.

These new themes and styles are not limited to Type feature only.

Until now, users had been relying on creative workarounds to create text-only posts.

A Mild Day, But Much Chillier Friday
Any new snow would be under an inch, with a half inch falling Thursday and a half inch falling Friday , the weather service said. Wind speeds are expected to be from the mid-teens to the low 20s, with gusts as high as 30 miles per hour throughout the region.

If you scroll back to "Normal" mode in Stories, you can also switch from the "Classic" font to the Modern, Neon, Typewriter and Strong typefaces.

It also allows you to add the text styles to your image or video-based stories but it is not necessary.

Interestingly, the new fonts and colours are not meant only for the Type mode posts.

Instagram is a Photo-Video significant social network. For example, one of the new features introduced on the photo-sharing platform lets users see the online status for people on Direct (direct messages).

Soon, users will also be able to upload photos or videos of any size to Stories.
