Transcript for Instagram Update Adds 'Stories' Feature Similar to Snapchat
How about instagram news. Social media news to start "Pop news." Trying to keep us all current. Sure. Instagram is now going head-to-head with snapchat. Unveiling its very own stories feature. You know how much we use this stories feature on snapchat. Now the instagram section is bearing a striking resemblance to snapchat stories allowing them to share stories that will disappear in 24 hours. Celebs already in. Taraji P. Henson and taye Diggs did it on the set of "Empire." Kate Hudson has tried it getting used to the new feature. There -- is that Kevin hart? There's Kate. Even us, even at "Gma" we started posting on it, as well. The stories features are pretty similar. There are differences between the two. Instagram still working out a way to integrate user comments in sometimes the comments aren't necessary. No need. Don't worry about that part of it. All good. Think you guys have nailed it. Also in "Pop news," don't be surprised if you're in Boston and the sound of police sirens are replaced with I familiar jingle of an ice cream truck. The Boston pd has added everyone's childhood favorite to their fleet in the city's rock spring neighborhood, operation hoodsie cup, real cold, 32 degrees, the perfect temperature pore an ice cream cup and handed out the cups since 2010 and have the wheels to keep spreading the goodness. Purchased from the local dairy which agreed to donate all of the ice cream indefinitely. Great story. Really nice. Finally, robin, you may have missed the opportunity of a lifetime on your trip to China but you can always go back. A new way to enjoy the incredible scenery in hunan province that opened two days ago is not for the faint of heart. A glass bottom skywalk. Would you have done this while you were there? Ah. I have chills on my airports just looking at that. Third in the scenic mountain area. Coiling dragon cliff this is called. No thank you. About the length of a football field. Five feet wide, almost a file -- A mile down? Not everybody in those pictures appeared to enjoy it. So I ask you again, robin, you just got back from the trip of a lifetime would you have done this coiling dragon. You know what, I think I might have. Really? Looking at that I do pts know because it was a little bit wider. Five feet. Yeah. What is it about China. Shanghai has that other one. No, not -- And a guardrail. The strapped in one, no. Coiling dragon, I'm in. That's "Pop news," guys. Oh, "Morning menu."
