Instagram stories are one of the best ways to engage with your followers. The last reported statistic from Instagram shared that over 400 million people were using the feature daily. Two years and a quarantine later, that number can be assumed to be much higher.   

Being such a popular platform, and knowing Instagram, you can expect to have constant updates to keep us marketers on our toes. When those new features come out, it is generally not announced to the public, it is more of a “you know if you know.” 

Which leads us into the feature we discovered today that may have been possible for a while, but not common knowledge for the general public.
