Instagram is working on a vertical feed for Instagram Stories
Most feeds have one thing in common. We scroll vertically through the available content. Stories are an exception. Here we tap and swipe through the content. In the case of Instagram Stories, this may change in the future, because Instagram is working on a vertical feed for stories.
Vertical feed for Instagram stories is a prototype
A vertical feed for stories sounds on the one hand plausible, on the other hand one wonders how this affects the use of Instagram stories that has now been learned and how such a feed can be integrated into the app.
The Instagram feed is vertical. Then we have the feed for reels, which is also vertical. With Stories, Instagram would have a third area in which content is consumed vertically. This behavior has also been learned.
The feature was discovered by Alessandro Paluzzi and Instagram has also confirmed its work on a vertical stories feed to TechCrunch. However, Instagram is talking about a prototype that has not yet been tested in the app.
is the conversion of the Instagram feed navigation failed at the time
Incidentally, this is not Instagram’s first attempt to fundamentally change the navigation within the app. Perhaps you still remember that you could briefly “tap” through the Instagram feed and no longer have to scroll. So basically the opposite approach to the vertical feed for stories.
