TNW notes that all of these features may not be rolled out to all users, but is confident that some of them will be available soon. Other changes are possibly coming as well, including a native regram button, a Stories archive, and GIFs.

Instagram is testing a number of new features including the ability to search for GIFs to upload in your stories, according to screenshots obtained by The Next Web. For one, there's a new "Remix" feature that lets users vandalize their friends' photos with doodles and stickers, a move that reaffirms Instagram's intent to make photo-sharing as social as possible. This particular feature has been the topmost request of users since many years.

Soon in Instagram may be a new opportunity to repost the records.

Easily the most welcomed addition is a native Regram button that would allow users to reshare both videos and images without needing a third-party option.

The screenshot above suggests a native option is coming soon, which is great... because third party apps are often insecure and bad.

If you've ever wanted to deface your friends' photos, Instagram may have just the feature for you.

Favorite-friends: Earlier in the year, Instagram reportedly tested a favorite-friends which allows you to share content with a select group of friends. Instagram may finally be getting ready to unveil a "regram" button that lets you safely share other people's photos in your feed without making a copy of them. They will, however, get a notification when someone within the group shares a new post using the feature. There's now no way to share Instagram posts within the app itself; users often resort to third-party services, such as the Regram app for Android. This week, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel publicly blamed Facebook for allowing the rise in false news stories through its algorithms, saying, "content created to be shared by friends is not necessarily content created to deliver accurate information".
