Instagram released new updates just in time for Christmas and we think you'll dig them! Read about them in the roundup below.

Stickers

Simply tap the sticker button right next to the drawing and text tools to enjoy an assortment of stickers!

Special holiday stickers

Aside from the regular stickers, Instagram also created a few designs that are special for the Christmas season. There's a Christmas sweater, mistletoe, gingerbread man, and more! What's more, they're preparing a new set in time for the New Year!

Timestamp

Customize your photos according to the weather, current time, and location. Plus, when you use a location sticker, your followers can tap it to know more about the tagged place. If you're scared your story might appear on the location page, don't be because it won't.

Drawing tool

If you think the stickers and the special Christmas designs are awesome, wait till you tap on the candy cane icon beside the drawing tools! It's a candy cane brush created especially for the holiday season, which lets you doodle or write anything that will come out with the candy's pattern! And if you think that's sweet (pun intended), you can change its colors, too!

Hands-free option

When recording a video, all you need is to tap the record button ONCE, instead of pressing and holding it until you're done recording.

Unlimited text

You can now type as much text as you want by tapping the text button every time you need to add more "text boxes." You also have the option to choose the formatting of your text (align left or right or center) and there's a new slider that makes adjusting the text size a lot easier.

iOS users can now save all their stories from the past 24 hours as a single video.
