Instagram Adds a Create Mode to Its Revamped Stories Camera

On This Day is part of the mix, as are Giphy GIFs for backgrounds

Instagram rolled out a revamped camera highlighted by its new Create mode, which enables people to create content without sharing photos or videos.

The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network said in an email, “Your new Instagram camera lets you easily share what you’re doing, thinking or feeling with your friends. Create mode helps you combine interactive stickers, drawings and text without needing a photo or video to share.”

The new Create mode is highlighted by the addition of the popular On This Day feature from parent Facebook.

Choosing On This Day brings up a random post the user shared on Instagram feed on the same calendar day in a previous year, and tapping the dice button enables the user to view different posts.
