Instagram is testing a new way in which the Stories seem in a carousel and not like a single tile. The feature has started up appearing for a “small group” of Instagram users. Though, the navigation process is still like before. You can click to move on to the next story but you will have a view of what you have seen and yet to see once the feature is out.
The new feature will let users click through the stories and keep an eye on the line of stories. In the current layout, one tile has the entire space, and to view the next Stories, users are expected to either wait till it changes to the next automatically or click to view the next slide. It is revealing when the feature is for the wider audience. The feature is more appealing to desktop users. The format however seems fine for desktop users.
