The effortless way you fast forward through Stories could be coming to more of Instagram. A screenshot from user Suprateek Bose shows Instagram "Introducing a new way to move through posts -- Tap through posts, just like you tap through stories."

Now Instagram confirms to TechCrunch that it's testing tap to advance within Explore, and a spokesperson provided this statement: "We’re always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and bring you closer to the people and things you love." As for whether this could come to the main feed, an Instagram spokesperson tells me that not something it's actively thinking about right now.

Tap to advance, pioneered by Snapchat, eliminates the need for big thumbstrokes on your touchscreen that can get tiring after awhile. It also means users always see media full-screen rather than having to fiddle with scrolling the perfect amount to see an entire post. Together, these create a more relaxing browsing experience that can devour hours of a user's time.
