Instagram Is Testing Vertically Scrolling Stories

If you're an Instagram user, you definitely know about Instagram stories but did you know that Instagram planned to roll out vertically-scrolling Stories back in February last year? Even if you did, you've probably forgotten about this because up until now we're only seeing horizontally-scrolling ones. Well, it seems Instagram didn't forget that as it is now testing vertical scroll for Stories in Turkey and Brazil.

The horizontal version that we're familiar with lets you swipe between different Stories from the same user before you go to the next or previous one. But it seems that the vertical version will jump straight from one user's Story to another user's.

The same testing has also been confirmed by tech journalist Thássius Veloso in Brazil. While some users in these countries have received the feature, it's not clear yet if it will arrive in Malaysia or if it will be official.
