Instagram's group stories feature coming

Known for discovering hidden features in apps, Jane Mancun Wong found that Instagram tested Stories for group chats. Wong didn't forget to share the screenshots of the feature in the testing process with his Twitter followers.

When we look at the images that Wong shares, we can see that the Stories screen includes your Story and Close Friends as well as the Group Story option. Just like in the Close Friends feature, users can select the Group Story option to show their shared Story to only the people in their chosen group. Similarly, users can create a new group through the feature and share their Stories with this group.

It is possible to say that the new Group Story feature adds a new layer of privacy to stories. This makes it easier for users to limit their viewers. Instagram directs users from story to group chat with a recently published chat sticker, this new feature, together with a specific topic within the framework of a wide range of groups to increase the interaction of Stories.

In the meantime, it's worth remembering that Instagram's parent company, Facebook, removed the Group Stories feature from the platform nine months after it was released. Although Facebook hasn't achieved the performance it expects in Group Stories, Instagram, a more visually-focused platform, may appeal to users. However, it is not yet clear when the Group Story feature will be available to users in the testing process.
