Instagram is rolling out a new group Stories feature that lets you create groups of people who can collaborate on private stories with their friends.
Back in October, Jane Manchun Wong spotted a new Instagram “Group Story” feature that allows you to create groups to create, view, and collaborate on group Stories. The feature has already been available for around a year on Facebook, but now Instagram is finally rolling out its own version.
In a Tweet last week, Vikki, a self-styled “Geek Lifestyle Blogger,” announced that she was seeing a new feature that lets you “create group stories with friends.” In a comment, she added that it could be handy for group events like “conferences, vacations, birthday parties, weddings, and team-building retreats.”

Apart from the obvious, the new group Stories feature is another way for Instagram users to share and collaborate on content within a private space. This is something more and more people are doing, and many have already found workarounds to make it happen.
Instagram’s group chat powers the new feature, so it’s only natural that it will be used for smaller groups of users in tight-knit friendship circles, rather than larger interest groups like those on Facebook.
