Instagram brings Stories to the mobile website

Instagram says that over 250M people use its Snapchat-like Stories every day, even more than the 200M that were reported back in March. But Stories so far were tied to the mobile apps and that limited their visibility to users. Now, Stories will start showing up on the mobile website as well. (The desktop site still doesn't have them.)

Starting today and over the next weeks, Stories will show up on the top of your feed when you visit instagram.com from your mobile browser. You can view any story by tapping it and switch by tapping the left and right arrows on the side of the screen.

Instagram 10.29 adds photo and video replies to Stories [APK Download]

Instagram added 'Stories' a while back, enabling users to post photos and short videos that only last 24 hours. Even though it's a direct clone of Snapchat's own Stories feature, there are more people using it than the collective userbase of Snapchat itself. So, it only makes sense that Instagram would continue to improve it, and now you can reply to Stories with photos and videos.
