Mind. Blown.

1. GO FORWARD AND BACKWARD
To skip over a post, tap the right side of the screen to move forward to the next post. If you'd like to go back to the previous post, just tap the left of the screen.
2. HIT PAUSE

If you want to pause a video you're watching in someone else's story, hold your finger down on the screen to stop pause it and raise your finger to start it up again.

3. CUSTOMIZE YOUR COLOR

To pick a different color to write or draw with other than the 27 automated options, simply press down on any of the color circles and pick the specific shade you want from the spectrum that appears.

4. COLORBLOCK YOUR SCREEN

Using the marker tool, drag your finger down the screen slowly (and I mean very slowly) and the colored line will turn into a box that you can use to make a text box or fill the entire screen as long as you continue to hold your finger down.

5. COLOR-CODE TEXT

You can also change the colors of your text by selecting any word or letter and picking a color from below in any combination.
