The new Instagram stories desktop design is finally coming

"We hear from our community that they want to see fewer posts in Stories", the notification starts. As a part of the update, users won't be able to share feed posts on Stories that many upcoming creators do to expand their reachability (due to Instagram's algorithm favouring friends and family).

"This is an early prototype and is not now testing on Instagram".

Interestingly, the limitation applies to any feed post, not just yours, which means you won't be able to reshare someone else's picture in your story. As per a new report, Instagram will be changing its stories design to a vertical swipe up/down style. Even Snapchat is borrowing ideas from TikTok.

Swipe up and down to browse stories. The Reels portion of Instagram usually consist of people sharing their TikToks from the app and since Instagram can not block people from posting Reels resurfaced from TikTok, it is encouraging people to stop doing that.

Draghi agrees to try to form Italian government
A Draghi government would reinforce Italy's global standing at a time when it has the presidency of the G20. He suggested he was pleased with the outcome, praising Mattarella's "wise" decision.

Today, the company's TikTok rival, Reels, has been shoehorned into the platform via the Instagram Explore page, where Reels sits in the top position. When you click on the Reels video here, you're taken to a new user interface where you then vertically swipe through videos, similar to TikTok.

This doesn't feel right, and the launch of the new format has added to Instagram's clutter.

The platform has been looking for ways to streamline how content is shared on the app.

Many people browse Instagram from their desktops while at work, as it might be prohibitive or too visual to take out their smartphone. After introducing Reels past year, Instagram is reportedly testing another TikTok-like feature to enhance their overall user experience. The vertical feed appears to be inspired by TikTok's popular vertical video feed format. The Facebook-owned photo-video-sharing app could soon disable the ability to share posts from your feed to stories. The change was a transparent attempt to give Reels a boost after people were mostly just confused about the new format.
