After updating the app, you will see a camera icon located in the left corner of the screen whenever you are seeing someone’s Story. If you want to send a photo or a video to your friend, you have to tap the camera icon and it would take you to your camera screen with a view of the Story you are replying to in a thumbnail. From there, you can take a new photo, shot a new video, create a Boomerang, apply filters and emojis, write texts on the image you are sending, and send it as a reply. You can even resize the media you are sending according to your own liking.
