New story mode on Instagram? Photobooth creates a stop-motion story with 4 pictures

The Photobooth camera mode could soon be available to all users. It has already been tested under the name Poses and enables short stop-motion stories of four images each.

Instagram users may soon be able to use another new function in story mode. Twitter user @Satyam_sinha_ discovered the photobooth camera mode, which – similar to the photo booth that gives it its name – transforms a sequence of four images into a kind of stop-motion story. These pictures, taken in quick succession, can then be combined and shared in the story.

Poses becomes Photobooth: Instagram continues to work on a new camera mode for the story

Reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong discovered a story feature called poses back in December 2019. This camera mode takes four pictures (one every three seconds). Then these are put together and can be integrated into the story as a stop-motion element:

Wong already explained in her tweet that this principle is similar to that of photo booths. Now this camera mode has reappeared in the story mode of some Instagram users. However, under the appropriate name Photobooth. This is shared by social media expert Matt Navarra, for example, with reference to the discovery of @Satyam_sinha_ on Twitter:

Satyam Sinha himself shares videos in which he demonstrates how the new mode works and what effects it has to offer:

It is still unclear whether the new story mode will soon be available to all users. However, the tests at different time periods and with different names for the function suggest that Instagram is not only planning a roll-out, but is already in prospect.
