New Delhi: Photo and video sharing platform Instagram, on Wednesday, announced that instagramers can now browse 'Stories' of their interests on the basis of location and hashtag.

The users will see a new 'Ring' at the top of 'Explore' area filled with stories happening near them. These Stories come from people who have used location stickers on their Stories. Users can also search for any location around the world.

The Stories can be found by searching a hashtag. For example, type "#newyork" to find Stories related to New York.

If a user adds a location sticker or hashtag to his or her story, they may be included in the larger story.

Location stories on "Explore" are available on iOS and Android as part of Instagram version 10.22 in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Hashtag stories will be rolling out over the coming weeks.
