Instagram Will Soon Test Tall Photos With Fullscreen Reels
Photo and video sharing platform Instagram may have halted its controversial redesign, however that does not imply the company plans to prevent that specialization in full-display screen content. Currently, Instagram tops out around 4:5 whilst displaying vertical images which have been cropped accordingly. But help for slimmer, taller images will help them to fill the whole display as you scroll via the app’s feed. CEO Adam Mosseri confirmed that Instagram will start checking out ultra-tall 9:16 photos “in per week or two.” “You may have tall videos, however, you can’t have tall photos on Instagram. So, we thought perhaps we have to ensure that we treat each equally,” Mosseri said.
