Today, we’re introducing an early version of geostickers in Instagram Stories for New York City and Jakarta. Since introducing stickers in December, we’ve loved seeing how you’ve used them to bring your stories to life — from hats to Valentine’s Day fun to customizable location stickers. Now, with more than a dozen new stickers each for New York City and Jakarta, you have another creative option for adding context to your everyday moments.
When you take a photo or video and tap the sticker icon, you’ll see geostickers at the top. No matter where you are in New York City or Jakarta, you’ll see a custom sticker for that city. You may see other stickers appear when you’re visiting select neighborhoods and landmarks — each one is designed to match the vibe of the location it represents.
You can add as many stickers as you want, adjust their size and placement and mix and match with other creative tools. Just like the customizable location sticker, people watching your story can tap a geosticker to see the location page. Your story won’t show up on the location page itself.
As you’re exploring these cities, keep an eye out for stickers you can use. We can’t wait to bring you more creative tools soon.
This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.11 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. To learn more, check out the Instagram Help Center.
