Instagram is probably testing a new story layout that hides excessive messages

San Francisco, May 18: The meta-meta-owned photo-sharing platform is reportedly testing a new Stories layout that hides excessive messages. According to 9 To 5 Mac, Phil Richel, a Brazilian Instagram user, noted that the Instagram app now shows only three stories shared by other people.

Currently, users can post 100 stories at a time. Although this number should remain the same, despite the change, users who received the update should click “Show All” to see the rest of the stories. Otherwise Instagram goes to the next person’s stories.

This is leading to significant changes in the way Instagram Stories work, the report said. Since some people are used to tapping the screen to see all the stories from the account at once, this will become more impossible after the upgrade. For creators, this means that any posts after the third story are likely to have fewer views. YouTube Music for Wear OS now allows users to stream content over Wi-Fi and LTE.

At the same time, limiting the number of stories displayed in the app should allow users to see messages from more people faster if they are not interested in the content.

It now appears that only a small group of users have received an update with the new Stories layout, so it’s likely Instagram is still testing these changes before deploying them to all users, according to the report.
