After Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and now Youtube stories, we have a way to use “stories” or “status” feature in WordPress also.
For this, we will need:
- Latest official AMP 1.2.0 plugin which has this AMP Stories (beta) feature
- Latest Gutenberg plugin (The one merged into WP 5.0 is old.)
Here are some AMP Stories examples:
Although currently, large videos take time to load hence AMP best practices mention keeping video less than 4MB size.
I think the news sites can make great use of this, as they keep on adding new photos to a story, and give a status update. Like we are used to seeing the Whatsapp status updates, the news stories can also be used in such a way to keep people updated on the news story.
