Instagram is keeping up with Facebook and Snapchat in terms of user engagement. The app recently received a small update, which moves the Stories feature into the Explore tab.

From the Explore tab, Stories will recommend Instagram accounts that the app thinks are interesting for individual users. Stories will appear at the top of the Explore bar, reports The Next Web.


Stories will also follow the privacy settings already set in place for an account, so if it was set to private, then only followers will be able to see uploaded content.

Instagram claims that over 100 million users are now taking advantage of Stories where some see the feature as a primary way of using Instagram, says Product Management Director Blake Barnes.  Alfred Bayle
