It will be a great relief for Instagram users, especially for those who put longer video stories regulary. Their stories are divided into 15-seconds clips. Now Users will be able to post uninterrupted stories that won’t be broken up. Besides, users don’t have to continually tap to get through a long video. That is an exhaustive and boring process.
Earlier, a tweeter user named Matt Navarra shared a post regarding Instagram working on this feature. He shared the screenshot showing Instagram is introducing longer stories. He wrote, “Instagram Confirms Videos Under 60 Seconds in Stories will No Longer Be Split into Segments”.
