Instagram Stories are now on the Explore tab as well
In August, Instagram announced stories, which were pretty similar to the ones on the Snapchat. Now, Instagram Stories are available on the explore page as well. According to Instagram, the explore tab is being visited by 100 million user who goes through the photos and videos from accounts they don’t follow. With the new update, those users will also see stories from those accounts.
When you think about the purpose of the Instagram Stories though, the addition of the stories to the explore tab seems like a good idea. Instagram wanted users to share more photos and videos. And now, they want users to spend more time by interacting with those medias.
Even though Instagram is getting closer to Snapchat, there are still many features to add. For example, the addition of the face-altering filters would be nice.
New update including the new explore tab is rolling out for Android and iOS users starting today.
