True to form, Instagram will be giving its users various creative ways to celebrate Pride month. Among them, rainbow-coloured Story rings.
While Facebook has decided to stop its temporary Pride Month features like rainbow reactions, Instagram is taking its celebration of Pride Month to another level. According to reports, Instagram will be introducing a rainbow-coloured ring around Stories that use Pride-related hashtags.
Stories rings are usually the pink and orange Instagram gradient, or green whenever a close friend publishes one, but now they seem to be getting a bit of a rainbow makeover. The feature was spotted by Jane Manchun Wong last week, who also tweeted several screenshots.
As is usually the case with the features Wong spots, this Pride-themed feature hasn’t been released or announced yet.

If this feature is released, after all, it will join several other creative options that Instagram releases every year to help its users celebrate Pride Month, like rainbow backgrounds for stories, rainbow hashtags, location stickers, etc.
