Instagram Is Testing New Design For Stories On Desktop

With the new look, Stories appear in a carousel rather than a single tile that takes up the entire page. Navigation is still the same — you can manually click through the Stories or let them play automatically — but it’s now easier to keep track of where you are in your queue.

It’s not clear exactly how many users are seeing the new look, or if the change will become permanent. A spokesperson confirmed the test, which began appearing to a “small group” of Instagram users last month, but didn’t comment on when it might be more widely available.

So while this may not be the biggest change, it will be a noticeable improvement for anyone who spends a lot of time browsing Instagram outside of its app.
