Are you all aware of the fact that Instagram has genuinely shaded Snapchat? This is all on account of a tiny update called Instagram Stories. Throughout recent years, Snapchat has made a case for the segment, permitting clients to take short recordings of themselves and share with their friends at whatever point they feel like it. At that point, all of a sudden, Instagram chose they needed to do precisely the same.
For the most recent week now, Instagrammers have possessed the capacity to share stories at their pleasure, notwithstanding including their own content and Emojis. Snapchat still has the high ground in the dog filter classification, however, it’s (most likely) just a short time. Actually, this has started a verbal dispute all over the nation. With the advancement of this feature, is this the end of Snapchat? Will the users oppose Instagram and their apparently copycat ways? We’re here to end that civil argument for the last time.
- Both are called “Stories”
- Both allow clips up to 10 seconds in length
- Both make stories temporary by removing uploads after 24 hours
- Both allow you to select and watch your friends’ stories sequentially
- Both allow you to reply to stories with direct messages
- Both allow you to add custom text atop your images and video
- Both include filters
- Both let you draw with a built-in marker
- Both include the option to save the media directly to your camera roll
But the two differ at some points –
- Instagram allows you to “rewind” stories to play back things you may have missed
- Instagram has more marker options when it comes to doodling
- Instagram lets you post sections of your story as an Instagram post
- Instagram doesn’t show you who screenshots your story, but Snapchat does
- Geofilters and facial-mapping are still limited to Snapchat
Personally, I think the Instagram design is easier to understand and all-around looks better. Of course, this is just the beginning of this battle. Let us all wait for the result that who has dominated whom.
