Along with photos and videos in Instagram Stories, you can add direct links instead of the Swipe Up feature. The new “Links” feature is one of the “stickers” you can include in your Story. You no longer have to type part of the URL text.

One limitation of the “Links” stickers is that you can only add one sticker per Story.
