In a bid to improve visual conversations among users through its messaging tool 'Direct', photo-sharing app Instagram has added the feature to reply to users' 'Stories' with photos or videos.
The replies would include a sticker of the original story that a user may move around and resize.
"Today's update is just one of the ways we're working to make 'Direct' the best place to have fun, visual conversations with friends on Instagram," the Facebook-owned app said in a statement.
To reply with a photo or a video, a user must tap a new camera button that appears while watching a friend's story.
When a friend replies to a user's story with a photo or a video, it can be seen in the inbox.
As with disappearing photos and videos in 'Direct', a user's friends will know when he or she has taken a screenshot or replayed a reply.
