California [United States], December 28 (ANI): Change is difficult to absorb. Probably that's exactly what happened when Instagram tested a new feature which didn't go down well with its users.
Yesterday, Instagram ran a limited test of a horizontally scrolling feed. Clearly, it was a test and not intended to be a true feature. However, users went berserk with the change when the endless up or down scrolling was replaced with Tinder-like swipes.
Users posted screenshots and screen recordings of the feature in action, and it appeared to mimic Instagram Stories, where you tap to move to the next story on the right.
Meanwhile, Instagram head Adam Mosseri clarified that the feature was supposed to be a very small test but accidentally was rolled out to more users. (ANI)
