Instagram recently upped their game with the introduction of Instagram Stories — but it gets better. The folks over at IG are about to make your life a whole lot more colorful! Are you ready for it? Now, you can change the color of the text in your stories to whatever your little heart desires. So, how do you paint with all the colors of the wind to make your font pop?


It’s super easy. After you’ve created your story you’ll be given the option to decorate/add text.

When you tap the “Aa” icon you’ll see a color palate with a few really pretty pre-installed colors. You’ll then have the option to chose one of those OR select a custom shade simply by pressing and holding.

Forget editing images across several apps, you can now add all your customizations right there in Instagram Stories.

Another great feature is having total control of who’ll receive your stories. Maybe you want to hide your crazy girls’ night out from your mom — you totally can. Just go to your profile, look for the settings icon, find “Story Settings,” then “Hide My Story From” and select mom – sorry, mom.

Insta-Stories is a bold move by the company to encourage users to share more on the platform.
