Instagram rolls out uninterrupted stories for users: see details


Meta-owned Instagram has rolled out a new feature globally that will allow users to upload long uninterrupted stories.

Currently, if an Instagram user uploads a story of less than 60 seconds, it is split into 15-second clips.

“Now, you’ll be able to play and create continuous Stories for 60 seconds instead of being automatically cut into 15-second clips,” a Meta spokesperson told TechCrunch.

“We are always working on ways to improve the Stories experience,” the spokesperson said.

Viewers no longer have to constantly tap to watch long videos they don’t really want to watch.

In addition, the ability to post long uninterrupted stories somewhat blurs the lines between stories and reels, as you now have two options for posting a 60-second video.

In June, Instagram added support for longer reels of up to 90 seconds, up from the previous 60 second limit.

Meta-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram is also testing a new Stories layout that hides excessive posts.

Users can currently post up to 100 stories at a time. While this number should remain the same despite the change, users who have received the update will need to tap the “Show All” button to see the rest of the stories.

Otherwise, Instagram jumps to the next person’s stories. It brings a significant change in the way Instagram Stories work.
