With the latest update, when user reply to direct message with photo or video, a sticker of the original post will be added to the reply. A user can move it around the screen and do basic functionality such as rotating it or resizing it. Addition to that, when user tap on the sticker, message will be converted into split-screen reply and user can doodle also.
