Instagram adds stylized text-only ‘Type Mode’ to stories

Instagram app on phone

Instagram has rolled out a new feature called ‘Type Mode,’ allowing users to share stylized text over colourful backgrounds to their stories without photo or video.

When opening the camera in Instagram, a new option called ‘Type’ will now appear next to ‘Normal’ under the record button.

After tapping Type, users will be able to choose from different fonts and background colours, as well as highlight words and add a background photo.

Type Mode is available as part of Instagram version 30 for Android and iOS devices.
