San Francisco: Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram is reportedly testing a Stories redesign with vertical scrolling in its app.

As reported by 9to5Mac, as reported by social media consultant Matt Navarra, some users based in Turkey have received an Instagram update that brings vertical scrolling to Stories, while stories from the same user are still displayed on the left or right side of the screen. As can be seen by tapping, swipe down to go to the next user’s stories.

As per the report, tech journalist Thassius Veloso also received the same update in Brazil, which suggests that Instagram is rolling out the new vertical scrolling design to more countries.

The report states that the change probably comes as an attempt to compete with TikTok, which already offers vertical scrolling in its app.

As a result, Instagram is focusing Stories more on video rather than static content.

Back in December, Instagram was testing an increased maximum limit for videos in Stories, which went from 15 seconds to 60 seconds.

While users can already post videos up to 1 minute long on Instagram Stories, they are split into four videos of 15 seconds each.
