Instagram bringing new layout for Stories

This is a feature that might get wrong or amazing, we can’t say! According to reports, Instagram is working on a new Stories layout that will hide excessive posts. Many users use Stories to share everything they do over the course of 24 hours. However, with this new feature, Instagram will put a stopper on the number of stories viewed by others. The app will only show three of the stories submitted by others while obscuring the rest.

The update comes fresh from the oven by Phil Ricelle, a Brazilian Instagram user, at the moment users can post 100 Stories at once. The feature will stay the same, only the user will get the power to see only the first three of the lot while the rest gets hidden. Now, the update will come really handy for the ones who don’t want to go through everything a person posts throughout the day. Those interested in more than just three Stories from an account will simply have to click on a new Show All button, otherwise, the platform will take you to the Stories from the next user.
