Instagram: display posts in full screen


Instagram manager Adam Mosseri has confirmed the full-screen posts display test. Larger photos and videos should start appearing in some feeds.

“We are testing a new immersive display experience in the main Home stream. If you’re in the test watch it and let me know what you think,” Mosseri captioned a video posted to Twitter.

A new format

The bottom navigation bar will provide access to the discovery tab, Reels, purchases and its own page. Likewise, the icons for switching accounts, creating a post, checking your notifications and browsing your messages are still present in the top bar. Comments, likes and other information will be placed at the top of images, not at the bottom as usual.

“Although the test image we received doesn’t show where Stories appear, an Instagram representative confirmed that Stories stay at the top of your feed – they just don’t appear in this mockup, since the capture screenshot was taken after scrolling past the top of the stream,” the outlet said. In short, Stories will remain at the top of the screen, with the Stories bar still positioned along the top of the app. An indicator at the bottom of posts will prompt the user to swipe left to see the rest of the content.

Videos that are worth gold

Instagram had previously announced that, given the format’s popularity, it wanted to align its content feed around Reels.

Meta, Instagram’s parent company, noted in its earnings call last week that Reels, its TikTok clone, now accounts for more than 20% of the time people spend on Instagram. On Facebook, videos of all kinds make up 50% of the time users spend on the platform. Besides, with this news of displaying its main feed, Instagram’s content looks a lot more like TikTok. The latter is also based on the latest usage trends.

Realizing the weight and power of these videos, the Instagram platform has even started offering cash bonuses to creators making the best Reels. Similarly, in late April, Adam Mosseri announced that the platform would change its ranking algorithm to reward “original” content over reposted content.

Instagram is working on a new feature that will let you view feeds in full screen

Adam Mosseri, CEO of Instagram, recently posted a tweet in which he shows off a new interface for feeds with full-screen photos and videos.

Over the past few months, Instagram hasn’t stopped test new features for your platform such as stories with vertical scrolling or the ability to respond to them with voice notes with the clear goal of being able to compete face to face with your great rivalICT Tac.

Well, in this sense, now we have just learned, thanks to the media Phone Arena, that the social network owned by Meta is testing a new function that will allow you to view streams in full screen.

Instagram is testing a new display for News Feed

New experiments on Instagram’s homepage will bring the app closer to its competitor, TikTok. The company has started experimenting with full-screen content display on the homepage, where users will see vertical content as soon as they open the app.

Testing is underway according to social media manager Adam Mosseri in a video posted to his Twitter page. According to him, “larger” photos and videos will start appearing in some users’ feeds.

In his new full-screen posts, comments, likes and other information are placed at the top of the images, not at the bottom, as usual. Although the Stories compartment is not visible, Meta claims that users can access Stories from the top of the screen. Search, Reels, Purchases and User Profile will always be available, thanks to the buttons at the bottom of the screen. Notifications, messages and other options will be located at the top of the screen.

Instagram’s innovations were expected as the company seriously intends to compete with TikTok and other similar services. The social network actively promotes short videos among content creators and users by allocating funds for rewards to the best Reels creators. However, cloning videos from TikTok is discouraged.

In addition, at the end of April, Mosseri announced that the platform would change the ranking algorithm, in favor of “original” content. At the same time, the company is trying in every possible way to attract authors of original content from competing sites, including developing special tools for easily creating videos in Reels format.

The use of Instagram in some countries has fallen sharply in recent times. In the case of Russia for example, during the third week of April, Russians spent an average of 57-58 minutes per day on social media; while from February 24 to March 14, this figure was higher, from 66 to 72 minutes per day. These figures are obviously explained by the current conflict between Ukraine and Russia, which has a huge impact on sectors, including digital.

A NEW HOME FEED FOR INSTAGRAM?

Mark Zuckerberg’s social network continues to evolve. It must indeed be in continuous evolution if it wants to face the competition.

It must be said that since the arrival of TikTok on the market, the other apps feel quite in danger. And that’s okay! The Chinese social network has made incredible growth since it went online.

So to retain its subscribers and attract new ones, Instagram does not hesitate to update its features. Thus, users were entitled to many changes in recent years.

Starting with the Reels. This new format has changed the habits of Instagram fans. Moreover, this new short video format is a hit on the social network!

It was recently learned that Instagram users spend almost 20% of their time in the Reels section of the social network. We can therefore say that it is a real success.

But that’s not all, Instagram has indeed tested other new features to improve the experience of its users on the platform. Now it is a full screen feed that the app is testing.

Instagram announces a TikTok-style news feed: full-screen photo and video posts

An Instagram feed focused on videos

In a tweet, Adam Mosseri, the boss of Instagram announces tests with certain users over the next few weeks to offer a new, more immersive experience on the news feed, with posts appearing in full screen.

Here are the changes announced on the home page:

Note: in the image above, the Stories do not appear. It looks like the Stories bar will no longer be visible when a user starts scrolling but it will still be accessible at the top of their screen regardless.

This new experience on the News Feed is not a big surprise. At the end of March 2022, Instagram was already starting work on a new full-screen display, according to a tweet from Alessandro Paluzzi, mobile developer and engineer, who gave us a first look at the full-screen News Feed.
