After testing Stories being displayed in multiple rows, Instagram has now moved on to test ‘See All Stories’ display option with select users.
Instagram Stories are increasingly gaining prominence as a feature, something the platform has been paying close attention to. They have released multiple updates to make the user experience better on the app, may it be polls, GIFs, music or filters. Every few days, users are served with something new. Now, they are putting in efforts to spruce up the way Stories are displayed on the app. After experimenting with two rows, Instagram is now testing an option to display all Stories one separate page.
A few days ago, Social Media Manager Julian Gamboa tweeted a screenshot to highlight Instagram’s experiment with ‘See All Stories’. By clicking the button, users will get access to navigate a Stories-only page.
Reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong had tweeted along similar lines in April, predicting possibilities in regards to the multi-row feature on the app.
Confirming the move to TechCrunch, Instagram said that the test is being run with a small number of users for the time being and that the test has been live for over a month now. In regards to the test, a Facebook company spokesperson told the publication, “We’re always testing new ways to improve the Instagram experience for our community.”
Recently, Twitter had rolled our Fleets in India, a feature arguably similar to Instagram Stories in look and appeal. The update had received mixed reactions from users on the platform, much of which was hilarious.
