Instagram users on Windows 10 Mobile can rejoice as Instagram has been updated to 9.575.8218 and with comes the new Stories feature.
Stories from Instagram was announced on August 2 making this a nearly four-week turnaround before Windows 10 Mobile grabbed the feature. Stories has been compared to Snapchat's Stories right down to the same options like on-screen drawing, serial videos, and disappearing content (after 24-hours).
After the update and first launch users may need to relaunch the Instagram app to see the Stories feature, which lives in the main feed near the top.
It is not clear if other optimizations and fixes are included with the Instagramupdate, but we'll keep an eye out.
