Instagram's latest app update is basically Snapchat


Instagram announced its new Instagram Stories feature Tuesday. It might look a bit familiar.

Instagram has always been a place to share the moments you want to remember. Now you can share your highlights and everything in between, too.

Stories let you post as much as you want (no "overposting") and create a slideshow of photos and videos that disappears after 24 hours.

You can even add emoji and drawings to photos and videos in your story. And your stories disappear after 24 hours.

Wait, isn't that basically what Snapchat does?

We wish we could say we were the first ones to notice.

Basically the only organization not to make the Snapchat comparison was... Instagram.

This is how Instagram stories look in the meantime. 

Are you excited for Instagram stories!
