Until now, GIFs on Instagram have been the exclusive preserve of stories. Today however, with the introduction in the comments, a small revolution begins for Meta’s photographic social network. The GIFs will be, as for the stories, those contained in the huge Giphy catalog. Mosseri also stated that Instagram is testing the automatic texts in the Reels. The feature appears to be based on the auto-caption sticker introduced by Meta in 2021.

Judging by what Mosseri described, a timeline at the bottom of the interface will allow the user to properly sync captions with videos, especially useful for automatically creating subtitles in spoken videos.

Meanwhile, just in recent days, SIAE and Meta have reached a provisional agreement that will bring Italian music back to Facebook and Instagram.
