Nuevas Instagram Stories con menciones, links y boomerangs

La semana pasada, Instagram liberó en México su última actualización, dando un salto revolucionario en el uso de las stories y del contenido en tiempo real: ahora es posible hacer menciones, poner links y subir boomerangs directamente desde la app.

Today, we’re introducing a few new tools to help you make your story even more fun: Boomerang and mentions. We’re also starting to test links inside some stories. Boomerang lets you turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected. Now you can easily take a Boomerang right inside Instagram. Swipe right from your feed to open the stories camera. A new format picker under the record button lets you select “Boomerang” mode. You can also now share who you’re with or who you’re thinking of by mentioning them in your story. When you add text to your story, type “@” followed by a username and select the person you’d like to mention. Their username will appear underlined in your story. And when someone taps the mention, they'll see a pop-up that takes them to that profile. You may begin to spot “See More” links at the bottom of some stories. This is a test that lets verified accounts add links so it’s easy to learn more. From your favorite chefs’ recipes to articles from top journalists or concert dates from the musicians you love, tap “See More” or swipe up to view the link right inside the app. To learn more about today’s updates, check out help.instagram.com. These updates for Instagram Stories are available as part of Instagram version 9.7 available for iOS in the Apple App Store, for Android in Google Play and for Windows 10 in the Windows Store.

Sin duda Instagram Stories está basado completamente en las funciones de Snapchat: contenido efímero de 24 horas, intervención de fotos y videos, mensajes directos,  transmisión continua de contenido, y datos privados de performance (nadie sabe nuestros likes, views, etc.)
