When the user chooses to view a specific story, it gets bigger, to stand out, but without leaving the carousel.
Instagram is working on a new design that will make it easier for users to follow their contacts’ Stories through the desktop version of the social network.
The new design that Instagram prepares shows the Stories in a carousel format, which allows the user to navigate between them by simply moving from left to right, and vice versa. When you choose to see a specific one, it grows larger, to stand out, but without leaving the carousel.
This change responds to the need to make it easier to navigate and track Stories in the desktop version, as reported by Engadget. This test, confirmed by the company, has been deployed for a small number of users.
