Instagram now allows adding animated text to stories
When Instagram added the option to publish stories on its platform with the initial options they included, it was enough. After all, what users wanted was to publish an image or short video and add some text and little else.
Nowadays, stories have much more weight and that is why new tools are also needed to make them more colorful and attractive. This is how the stickers, the various filters, etc., but there was something that was still pending and for which many users had to turn to third-party applications: option to add animated texts.
Now that’s over and officially Instagram allows you to add animated texts to stories. It is true that compared to some specific applications for such a task it is still behind, but what the vast majority could demand is more than enough. So let’s see how to put animated text in an Instagram story. To give more life to your publications in that section.
How to add animated text to Instagram stories
The new option that allows adding animated text on Instagram It is something that may sound like some more intensive users of the platform, because they have actually been testing it for several months as a beta functionality. However, it is now that it has officially reached each and every one of the network users.
So let’s see how the process of placing animated text on Instagram is step. Something that we already mentioned is very simple, because the only thing that changes is the button that will have to be pressed to activate said animation.
- The first thing you have to do is open the Isntagram application on your mobile phone and go to the stories section
- Hit it to post a new story and take a photo, record a video or use the material you already have in the phone gallery
- Then, in the elements that usually appear to add to stories, click on the text
- When you access you will see that a new icon appears indicating the text animations
- Once you press, depending on the type of font you have decided, you will see that it performs one animation or another. Each one is different depending on the typeface
- Write what you want on a regular basis and add the rest of the elements you want to your story
- Ready, you already have a new story with animated text without the need to use third-party applications
As you can see, the process is very simple. It is true that it is limited to nine types of animations, one for each of the different fonts offered by Instagram. If we compare it with other applications or what you could achieve by resorting to more advanced software such as After Effects and generate the different stories there, it is logical that it loses the native option. But when it comes to giving it a little hassle-free life, this new option is greatly appreciated.
In addition, this new animation option supports other cheats or options that exist to personalize texts such as creating rainbows of colors. Something is as simple as selecting the text, then selecting a color and holding down. Now, samples, you move the selector from the right corner to the left, you move your finger across the color panel and you will see how they change.
In short, everything will depend again on how you know how to take advantage of each option, combine them with each other, etc. And if you want more creative options, then turn to the same third-party applications that have long been available.
