Instagram testing tap and browse through posts features

Facebook-owned Instagram is testing "tapping" that could replace scrolling through posts on the platform. 

The company is testing the tap-to-advance feature that will allow navigation between posts in the Explore section of the app.

"We're always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and bring you closer to the people and things you love," TechCrunch quoted an Instagram spokesperson as saying on Thursday. 

Instagram is already using an auto-advance feature in its "Videos You Might Like" section of Explore that automatically plays the next video, as soon as the last one finishes.

"As for whether this could come to the main feed, an Instagram spokesperson said it is not something they're actively thinking about right now," the report added. 

Introduced by Snapchat first, the tap-to-advance feature helps reduce user effort of regularly using the thumbstrokes and creating a more relaxed browsing experience.
