Instagram Is Testing a Stop-Motion Feature For Stories

by | Nov 2, 2017 | Social Media

Instagram apparently isn’t finished with Snapchat. If you’ve ever been near the latter before, you’re probably familiar with the stop-motion selfie that embeds on your unique Snapcode. Though the Facebook-owned platform doesn’t intend on replicating Snapcode, it wants to implement the same “stop-motion” effect to become available on Instagram Stories.

The Stop-motion tool is already available to a select few. The effect can be accessed in the camera filters menu, alongside Boomerang, Rewind, Superzoom, and the like. It allows you to take a series of photos stitched together to make somewhat of a moving effect.

The effect, of course, can be used a number of ways, from the profound to the profane. Like this example from a report on The Verge:

The Stop-motion tool doesn’t allow for individual editing of photos. Users will have to edit the animation as a whole by way of core story-editing tools like filters, stickers, and text.

There’s no info as to when the effect will be available globally if at all. But we’ll be sure to update you when it does. For now, why don’t you give both Typist Philippines and myself a follow on Insta?
