TIME - Tech

Instagram is adding more editing tools to its photo and video-sharing app on Tuesday, following the slew of updates it's released over the past several weeks. Users will now be able to add stickers to their Instagram Stories that provide context about when and where the image or video was taken, similar to the stickers available in Snapchat. To access these stickers, tap the smiley face icon in the top right corner of the camera screen within the Instagram app. From there, you'll be able to select a sticker that shows the current weather, time or location, and choose a specific style. Instagram is also offering holiday-themed stickers for a limited time, such as a Christmas tree, a dreidel or a gingerbread man.
