Instagram has announced the launch of a new feature called Stories, allowing you to “share all the moments of the day, not just the ones you'd like to keep on your profile.” All photos and videos that you share through the "Stories" are combined into a slideshow, you can apply filters, inscriptions to the images or add them to your liking. A video posted on the official Instagram blog shows several situations where this feature can come in handy: a company goes on a hike and shares wacky selfies with a bear, a girl sends a friend her photos from a clothing store and asks what to choose, friends break out at a party and shoot each other. All posts in "Stories" are deleted 24 hours after publication.

It is easy to see that the new Instagram function almost completely repeats the "stories" in Snapchat: there, too, you can draw a crooked mustache for a friend and attach yourself a funny wreath of flowers, and snaps disappear in a day.

“This is our next step towards the priority of video chats. People are already creating more and more videos, and our application will make it easier,”wrote the founder of the social network Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook. As a reminder, Facebook has owned Instagram since 2012.

Zuckerberg posted a screenshot of his first joke post on Stories - the well-known Facebook founder captured the agonizing choice between a gray T-shirt and a gray T-shirt, which he has to make every morning.

The feature is currently only available in the US and will be available to users around the world in the coming weeks.
