Meta-owned popular photo and video sharing social media platform, Instagram has been testing to update the Stories layout. 

The new updated Story layout will hide the excessive posts shared by the account holder.

As spotted by a Brazilian Instagram user, Phil Ricelle, Instagram will show just three of the Stories shared by the users. 

Right now, users can see up to 100 Stories but with the rumoured layout, viewers will just see three Stories and a "Show All" option 

So that those who do not want to see all the Stories, can skip right ahead to the next person’s Stories.

This layout might result in a massive drop in Story views, hence, bad news for creators and influencers on the platform. 

Many users have a habit of going through all the Stories on the platform by clicking on the screen

However, now they will need to think and select the option of "Show All" to watch the other Stories.

Notably, this layout is just in the testing phase for now, so it is not confirmed when or if it will roll out to other Instagram users globally.
