Instagram: This Monday (23), mobile developer and leaker Alessandro Paluzzi revealed on his Twitter profile the option to like stories on Instagram. Little information has been shown about the resource and, as the professional displays it in a short GIF, there is the possibility of liking a single post several times — it has not yet been informed if this is intentional or just an error.
As you can see in the image below, the tool is beside the box to write messages, which is also commonly used for quick reactions through emojis. The author of the leak also did not say whether the likes will replace the reactions. The change could decrease the number of private messages from some more “popular” users without having to use additional settings in Stories.
The news portal specializing in application updates WABetaInfo believes that there may be a list in the post that displays likes, but does not know if the function will remain present after Story’s “expiration date”.
It is noteworthy that the tool has not been confirmed by the social network and leaker has not informed a possible release date. Therefore, the information must be considered with caution.
Alessandro Paluzzi was also responsible for the recent leak of Exclusive Stories and vertical browsing in that media.
