The feature is already available to a few users. Today, Instagram added the ability to include GIFs in your Stories, as GIF stickers. The update also adds in support with GIPHY, which has a vast library of stickers.
Since first rolling out its stories feature in the summer of 2016, Instagram has been in a constant battle with Snapchat to continually introduce new pieces of functionality. "Now, you can add vibrant, animated GIF stickers to any photo or video and immediately turn any moment into something fun and shareable". I can spend hours placing teeny tiny Easter eggs, tweaking the layers and contours, and, since Messenger launched an AR feature that's out of this world, adding that little extra somethin' in Messenger to top it all off.
Tap the sticker marked by an animated GIF. Typing in "accessories" will bring up GIFs that can be used over faces on photos and videos, like hats, eyes, lips, ears and more.

Now, the social media giant has confirmed the feature's rollout to all users. For instance, if you type 'Wow, ' the app will show all the available GIFs that portray exclamation. Step 8: You can place the GIF wherever you want on your Instagram Story by dragging and dropping it.
Instagram is also making some changes to how you can upload photos and videos into Stories, which most users will start to see in the coming weeks. Previously photos/videos would be cropped to fit the frame, but now users can pinch it to share it in its original dimensions. You'll then be able to fill in the excess space with a customizable color gradient.
