Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram, recently provided an update via his broadcast, stating that Instagram is currently testing a new feature. While it may not be new elsewhere, it is certainly new here. Users will now have the ability to create stickers to use in their Stories or Reels from the photos on their mobile devices or by using images from other IG users with permission.
The usage process is quite simple. Users can select the “Create” option to generate stickers, then choose the desired image. Removing the background is also an option, allowing for the placement of stickers with precise edges wherever the user desires.
It is important to note that this feature is still in the testing phase, so it may take some time before it becomes available to all users.
TLDR: Instagram CEO, Adam Mosseri, announced an upcoming feature that allows users to create stickers for Stories and Reels using their own photos or images from other users (with permission). Users can easily remove the background and customize the sticker’s placement. Currently in testing, the feature will be rolled out widely in the future.
