Instagram Stories will no longer be split into clips

Il nuovo layout per le Stories di Instagram mostrerà meno contenuti thumbnail

Interesting news for Instagram users. As announced on Friday by the platform, the Instagram Stories less than 60 seconds they will no longer be divided into segments. On the other hand, the App had begun testing the function with a select group of users already at the end of last year, but has now finally decided to release the option globally.

Instagram Stories shorter than 60 seconds will not be split into clips

“We are always working to improve the Stories experience,” a Meta spokesperson told TechCrunch about the latest addition to the platform. “Now you’ll be able to play and create Stories continuously for up to 60 seconds, instead of having them automatically cut into 15-second clips.” A very welcome change to the application, both for creators and for users who just view other people’s content. Although in reality the ability to publish longer stories somewhat blurs the lines between the functions of Stories and Reels. Now, in fact, users have two options for posting a 60-second video.

Considering that the Instagram App is geared towards increasing video content, it is obvious that it has increased the time limits of Instagram Stories and Reels. In this regard, it is interesting to note that the push of the App on the Reels will lead Instagram to make the difference between its video contents ever more subtle. Just as demonstrated by the choice not to automatically split Stories shorter than 60 seconds into clips.
