Instagram Stories will now continue uninterrupted

Instagram continues to make changes to its content, and Stories will now work seamlessly when you post a short video on the platform.

Instagram has launched a new feature globally that will allow users to upload longer stories without interruption. Currently, if an Instagram user uploads a story under 60 seconds, it is broken into 15-second clips.

“You’ll now be able to play and create Stories continuously for up to 60 seconds, instead of automatically cutting into 15-second clips,” a Meta representative told TechCrunch. “We’re always working to make Stories work better,” the spokesperson added.

Viewers will also no longer have to keep clicking to watch a long video they don’t actually want to see.

Additionally, the ability to post longer stories without interruption somewhat blurs the lines between stories and reels, as you now have two options when it comes to posting a 60-second video.

In June, Instagram added support for longer reels of up to 90 seconds, up from the previous limit of 60 seconds. Photo-sharing platform Instagram, owned by Meta, is also testing a new Stories layout that hides excessive posts.

Currently, users can post 100 stories at a time. While this number should remain the same despite the changes, users who received the update should click the Show All button to see the remaining stories.

Otherwise, Instagram moves on to the next person’s stories. This brings significant changes to how Instagram Stories work.
