Using the Web site stories IG We can very simply view the stories of other users and even download them to our device, both photos and videos.
This tool is very easy to use we only have to access the Web site enter the name of the user of Instagram and ready after a few seconds we will appear the stories of that user, the exact date and time in which it was published we will also have the possibility of Download them and all this in a totally anonymous way.

This alternative works using the airplane mode of your phone, for this you must enter to Instagram in a normal way wait for the stories to be loaded that you want to view anonymously but without entering them. Once you have loaded correctly put your cell phone in airplane mode and turn off the Wifi in case you're connected to any network.

Then you can put your cellphone back in normal mode and turn on the Wifi again.

Instagram now allows us a wonderful new functionality to be able to share more original and flashy content in our stories.
With the possibility to add GIFs to the stories, Instagram opened up an immense range of possibilities to be able to design our stories with a fresher content. The company owned by Facebook in this case chose Giphy as the repository where you can find the Gifs. This web site is one of the largest Internet gifs repositories and also allows us to create our own GIFs in a simple way.
How to add GIFs to my Instagram stories?
If you want to add Gifs to your stories you can achieve this easily by following these steps:
1) Take a new photo or video for your Storie
2) Click on the button for emoticons
3) Click on the button "GIF"
From here Instagram will show you the featured GIFs but also selected the search option you can find the gifs that you like to decorate your stories.
Why do I not appear in Instagram Gifs?
But what if you don't have the ability to add the GIFS in your stories? And what can you do about this?
In general there are two great reasons why you can not access a new functionality specific to Instagram as in this case GIFS.
The first thing is that these new features are deployed gradually to all users, but this process is sometimes a long time. You may be among users who are not yet allowed access to this functionality, it is likely that Instagram continues to extend this functionality to the rest of the users and you have to wait some more time to use it.
Another aspect to consider if you can not use GIFS in your Stories is the version of the application you are using. You need to have the application of Instagram updated so you can use the latest features that it has. To achieve this you simply enter your app Store to find Instagram and verify that the Refresh button appears.

When you add text to your photo you will see at the top of your screen a text with the word "classic" when you touch that message the word changes and at the same time change the lyrics of your storie.

When you add a link to your story, those who access it will see the option view more at the bottom of the screen and can touch it to see the link inside the application.
If you don't have a verified account you won't have the possibility to add links in your stories, and the only sites where you can add links will be in your Bio and through direct messages.
Verifying an Instagram account is not an easy task in fact there are many users who have verified accounts on Facebook but fail to verify their account in Instagram.

The massive use and success of the Instagram stories in the last time popularized among users a very particular practice as is the publication of games or challenges for Instagram stories.
Nowadays many users spend their leisure time watching the stories of their friends in Instagram and that is why it is increasingly common to see profiles that are dedicated to publishing games in their stories. In this way they manage to amuse their followers and at the same time generate interaction with the user and increase their engagement.
The games or challenges that are used for it are of various types. Trivia, riddles, polls, voting but they all have the same goal to encourage the user to participate to give their opinion and often can get a reward for it. Sometimes the prize is like in your photos, or simply label the winning user and thus give visibility to your profile.
These games can be sometimes positive for the growth of a profile in Instagram since the interaction with the followers is something very valued by the algorithm of Instagram and will in many cases allow to make Instagram position favorably its publications On the Timeline or Feed. But it can also be negative why there are many users who complain about this type of content in the social network.
If you want to try your luck and see how the games work in your stories here we leave you some examples that we have seen so they serve as an inspiration.
The chain of 10 motives is one of the most popular in the stories of Instagram, is to publish 10 photos following the reasons shown in the image. We leave this template so that you can use it in your stories
As in the well-known television program is presented an alphabet in circular form is selected a letter and gives clues on a word that begins with that letter, the user is encouraged to participate by sending a message and is promised a prize to whom Guess PR Imero!
It presents a collage with photos of celebrities of the same category as in this case YouTubers and it is encouraged to the users to vote who eliminarian by means of a direct. The elimination is done one at a time and another photo is uploaded with the celebrities who are still in the race to find the winner.
Trivia Games There are all types here we show them the two that we found more fun
A trivia where you upload a short video with a background song and users should guess the name of it, or other times the artist who composed the song, year of release etc. And a prize is promised to whom guess.
Another very common trivia is to publish a photo of a famous with his face pixelated and that users guess who it is.
This game we found the most original, presents a picture with a series of images inside them where each image has an assigned number and a prize. Users must choose an image and their number and send their choice by direct. The images have different prizes and who chooses first will be the winner. Prizes can be a certain amount of likes in your photos, a mention in a stories or a repost in the photo or video that the winner chooses
What other games can you think of? We counted in the comments!
There are many queries that come to us the relationship to the possibility of using zoom in the stories of Instagram. So we decided to make a post where we will try to evacuate all your doubts.
One of the most common queries is how to take a photo or record a video for the stories using the zoom function to take more closely to the object in question. This is solved very easily when you take the picture slide your finger on the screen and ready.
Another of the questions that usually we consult is on how to zoom on the stories of our friends to be able to see the image in greater detail. This is a point that deserves special consideration because the app of Instagram does not allow us to zoom on this content at least in your app. To achieve this we must download the content to our cell phone and there we can zoom over the image.
We can choose two ways to download a storie to our cell, through a screenshot or through a specific app to download stories like Insta save Storie, you can find a tutorial on how to use it here
Whatever form you choose once you have the content on your Smartphone you must open the photo normally and zoom from your device.
