This is a great trick that can really enhance your stories going forward. This rainbow text will work over photos, videos, boomerang, backgrounds, etc.

How to add rainbow text to your Instagram stories:

  1. Open the Instagram app and create a story.
  2. Add elements to your story like photos, boomerang, etc, then add text.  This text should be the text that you would like to show as a rainbow.  Once you are done writing your text, select the next arrow.  
  3. Place your text where you would like (you can also zoom in and out), then select the text to change the color.   You should see the colors displayed below it.
  4. Long-press the text again so that the text is actually highlighted. Drag the highlight over all of the text that you would like to change to rainbow coloring.
  5. Place your left thumb on the left-hand highlight cursor and your right thumb on a color all the way to your right.  At the same time, drag your fingers towards each other at the same speed.  This will update your text and give it a rainbow look.  You can do this as many times as you would like.  In this video, I did it to each word individually because I  preferred the way it looked.  Once the text looks the way you like, select Done.
  6. You have now added rainbow text colors to your Instagram story!
