Instagram has introduced a new feature in its main app which allows you to like stories of your friends and family. If you are keeping up with the latest changes, the new 'Like' button is different from the reactions that we previously used. The feature rested in the beta for a while and it is now being rolled out to the general public. If you do not see the feature in the Instagram app, we would advise you to update to the latest build.

Step 1: The first thing that you have to do is launch the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android phone.
Step 2: Go to any story posted by your friends or family members.
Step 3: When you open the story, you will see a heart-shaped 'Like' button next to the Share button. Tap on it to like the Instagram Story.
This is all that you have to do in order to like an Instagram Story. It is another great addition by the social media giant, allowing users to show their support and interact with the person who posted the story. The process is fairly simple and seamless to use. However, if you accidentally liked a story on Instagram, you can easily unlike it by tapping on the red heart button. Your like would be reverted.
Take note that the new ability to like an Instagram Story is different from reactions. When you like the story, users will receive a notification in the Activity section of the app while reacting to a story would inform users in their direct messages section.
