Instagram is reportedly testing a new story layout that may hide additional posts on the story uploads. This may not be a good sign for creators who regularly posts update on the platform.
Instagram will just show the first three stories posted by a user while the other stories will be hidden. At the moment, Instagram allows uploading a max of 100 stories which is time-consuming. However, the new feature when available will offer users a button ‘Show all’ to view the rest of the stories.
Meanwhile, the new Instagram Story layout feature is available to just a limited number of users. Among them is Phill Ricelle, a Brazilian Instagram user who first spotted the feature and provided a sneak peek through a tweet.
As you can see in the image shared above, Instagram shows just three-story posts out of 33. To view all stories, there is a show all button (Written as Mostrar tudo which means Show all in Portuguese).
The update may be helpful for users who don’t want to go through a chain of stories and want to save some time. However, for creators, the update may likely lower the views on the story after the third post.
Last but not the least, Instagram didn’t offer any details about the release date. We feel the update will be made widely available once the testing receives positive feedback from its users.
