How Remixing on instagram works?
When you view a story on instagram. You will be provided the option to reply. You can click on the camera icon as shown below to reply with the same picture.
Then you can add text, doodles, emojis on top of the original picture. You can choose to allow the receiver to view it only once or on a loop. This works for video stories as well.
This new feature from Instagram comes as a way to one-up its top competitor Snapchat which has threatened its position as the most popular photo sharing platform. However, no one seems to be complaining as the competition between the two has been forcing both platforms to frequently innovate and introduce great new features. And this, ultimately, is what is in the best interest of the end-user.
