The photo messaging platform belonging to Facebook, Instagram, tests the “tapping” instead of scrolling publications on the platform, the media reported.
The company is currently testing the “Tap to advance” feature to navigate between posts in the Explore section of the app. “We are always testing ways to improve the Instagram experience and get you closer to the people and things you love,” TechCrunch quoted an Instagram spokesman as saying Thursday.
Instagram already uses an auto-advance feature in the “Videos you like” section of Explore, automatically playing the next video at the end of the last one. “As to whether this could happen to the main thread, an Instagram spokesman said that this is not an issue they are currently actively thinking about,” the report added.
