Instagram Is Making a Big Change to Swipe Up Links

A big change is coming to Instagram next week.

The social media company will be changing the way people can include links in their Instagram Stories and all of those swipe up links will be going away.

YouTube Sam Sheffer revealed a message that has been sent to some select users on the app.

“Swipe up links will soon be stickers. Starting August 30, swipe up links will go away. To add a link to your story, use the new link sticker,” the message read.

Currently, only users with more than 10,000 followers are allowed to use the swipe up feature, while all users will seemingly have the ability of adding a link sticker.

The Verge previously reported that “these stickers will operate the same way a swipe-up link does, except with a tap instead of a swipe. This also means that people will be able to respond to stories that include a sticker, something that is not possible on stories with a swipe-up link.”

A big Instagram record was just broken by an A-list celeb.
