“Stories” is the latest trend. Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Snapchat are following this trend very well. It seems like Signal doesn’t want to miss out on having this feature for its users, which is why Stories is now coming to Signal as well. Stories for Signal is coming to the Android beta version 5.52 and for iOS users, the version is 5.57.

Stories basically allow you to share videos, photos, or even text with people in your contact list that disappears automatically after 24 hours. Now, the messaging platform Signal is all set to bring the Stories feature to its platform.

Soon, Signal is bringing Stories Feature to its platform

For Signal users Stories will be available in the form of a new tab which is right next to the Chats section at the bottom of the app’s interface.

“You are always fully in control of who you share your stories with. You can share your stories with all of your Signal connections (Signal connections your contacts + anyone you’ve had a 1:1 chat with), or with a custom list of friends, or with any of your Signal groups,” it added.

The platform said that when you share stories with groups, anyone else in that group can view, share, react, and reply to that group story.

It also mentioned that the only people who will be able to see your stories will be your friends, who are also beta testers.

How To Create Stories On Signal

The developer says that the Stories feature also has the same technology in order to ensure users’ privacy. The app will provide options to let users decide who can see their Stories. It will also be possible to share Stories with a custom list of friends or with specific groups. Other people can see, react, and reply to a Story.

Unlike other platforms, Signal will let users turn off Stories completely if they’re not a fan of the feature. There are no details about when this feature is going to roll out completely.
