Instagram Stories has become more popular than Snapchat in no time and it was Snapchat from which the feature was originally taken. The main reason behind the rapid growth of Instagram is that they frequently add latest and engaging features. I mean it’s one social media app that gets a lot of updates when compared to others. Speaking of updates, here’s another one. Similar to reactions on Facebook posts and comments, the parent company has introduced the same for the stories in their popular media sharing app – Instagram. If words, photo or video are not enough for replying to a story then you have one more option now. It is possible to react to Instagram Stories of the people you follow.

Update to the latest version of Instagram and jump to the following steps.
1. Open the Instagram app and in the story tray at the top, tap on the Story avatar of the person/account whose story you want to view as usual.
2. When you open the story, you can either tap on the Send message box or swipe up from anywhere in the screen.
3. This will give you 8 reactions to choose from. Clap, Laugh, Love, Wow, Sad, & Fire/Lit, Perfect and Celebration. Tap on the desired one to react. Once you do that the screen will be showered with the emoji reaction you chose like a confetti.
4. As an owner of the story, you will get a push notification from Instagram telling that xyz user reacted to your story with the reaction smiley. Later you can also find the reaction in the DM section.
