Everyone’s favourite photo-sharing app has launched three new stories features - and two of them are holiday-themed!

Check them out below and get excited to create some festive Instagram stories.

Users can now choose to add holiday-themed stickers or filters to their story snaps.

There are now three new holiday- and winter-themed face filters for Insta-story fans, and plenty of new festive stickers.

You can now choose between one of three new filters, as shown above (snow-frosted glass, a holiday makeup look, or confetti balloons bursting).

Or maybe you're not planning on celebrating the holidays? Don't worry, Instagram also has winter-themed stickers that everyone can enjoy. 

Superzoom has also been revamped and users can now try out the new zoom effects.

If you're looking to switch up the sound effects, you can tap the music icon to choose from  “Bounce,” “Beats,” or “TV Show.” 

Don't worry if you can't see the superzoom just yet in your Instagram app. This new feature will be available to all users within the near future.

It's also worth noting that Instagram iPhone users will now see an updated set of color filters in their camera.

To view them, simply tap the camera icon in the top left of the screen or swipe right from anywhere in feed. Once you’ve captured your moment, swipe left or right to discover different color filters then tap ‘next’ to add to your story or send to friends directly.
