  • Effects can now be used in Stories
  • Removed the refresh icon in the top-right
  • Added Stories title to the top on the left

  • It is now possible to respond to Stories with photos
  • Introduced a new + icon to upload images and videos
  • The settings icon has now been moved next to the “Edit Profile” box
