Instagram new feature tap-to-advance, reverted back
Instagram accidentally rolled out the new tap-to-advance feature to live, and people are going crazy about it. The new feature allows people to view the feed at fullscreen and scroll vertically to read the next feed. Is this going to be the end of “Vertical” scrolling in 2019?
I have the new Instagram horizontal scroll interface. I’m sure this will not be met with any backlash WHATSOEVER. But seems maybe intended to reduce mindless vertical scrolling? cc @mosseri comments at the end 😭 pic.twitter.com/fwmtbfjFaf

The feature only appeared about few minutes and got reverted back to the “original” instagram. Vertical scrolling has been effective to the most applications as it really helps on skipping on some post much faster, but for horizontal swipe? I’m not sure how people will react if this update will come out in 2019. What’s your thought?
