Instagram allows users to send messages and photos to one another, and you even have the option of creating stories that you can choose to share specifically with certain people. Now it seems that Instagram wants to make this sharing a bit more interactive, and has announced a new feature that lets users edit the photos sent to them by their friends.

According to Instagram’s announcement, “When viewing a photo message from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and capture a reply. Your reply includes a sticker of what you’re replying to. Move and resize it, and add your own twist with stickers, text and drawings. You can remix photos back and forth for a fun visual of your conversation.”

The update will also let users control replays, where if you wanted, you could choose for certain messages to only have “One Replay”, versus the “Allow Replay” feature that lets friends keep replaying it while it is available. According to Instagram, “Photos and videos sent with “Allow Replay” loop automatically and your friends can tap and hold to pause.”

These changes are part of Instagram 24 and should be available on iOS and Android, so do check your respective app stores for updates if you haven’t updated the app already.
