Back in May, it was reported that Instagram was working on new double-story stories feed. Now, the company has announced that it is also testing out full-screen stories display.

As seen above, some users are now getting an option below their double-story stories display to “see all stories.” Which when clicked on, the story display extends to the full screen. Instagram has confirmed the testing and is under testing with limited users. Instagram has been working on this for some time as back in April the code for a full-screen stories display was spotted in the app.

These tests aim at the future of Instagram that will be the one where the app displays the full-screen stories display. With the increasing use of stories, it seems likely that Instagram might look to switch its main focus from traditional feeds to stories feed along with classic Insta stream shifted another tab. It does make sense for Instagram to cope up with user behavior.

The chances of this happening somewhat depends on the users how they react to the double-decker and the full-screen stories display. And if the test ends up with users using stories more, Instagram then might look to push the concept further.
