An update today to Instagram adds new ways to reply with photos and videos and also includes the option to send split-screen replies.

So far this month, we’ve seen Apple officially open an Instagram account, while the social media service has started testing a two-person live streaming feature, and also rolled out a new thread-based comment update.

Today, Instagram announced in a blog post new ways that users can use photos and videos to reply to photos, videos, and reshared posts in Direct.

Your reply will automatically include a sticker of what you’re replying to. Just hit “reply” to open the camera, take a selfie, and send.

The other new feature is the option to send split-screen replies by tapping on the sticker and being able to draw on it.

Add your own perspective by drawing on the sticker, whether you’re painting a mustache on your friend’s selfie or doodling on a beach photo.

Instagram version 10.34 includes these new updates and is a free download from the App Store.
