Well, users will be experiencing the view of other user’s stories with scrolling down the screen similar to how Snapchat offers currently.A Brazilian tech journalist “Thassius Veloss” received this update in his social networking account. This indicates that the tech giant is testing this update in many parts of the world.Although, it seems that this feature has come in competition with TikTok. TikTok already has this vertical scrolling in its app, and we already know that the two apps are in competition frequently.Last year in December 2021, Instagram increased their video posting time limit to 15 second to one minute. While the users were already posting one minute videos in 4 interval videos,15 second each.However, the mega tech has not yet announced any set date as to when these features will be available in all parts of the world permanently.Read next: Instagram works towards three new features which surely will be loved by many users
