Stories are coming to Signal

I learned that stories are coming to Signal from a commit message shared on Signal community forums earlier today. Stories is one of the top requested features, and something I personally like too.

A screenshot of a commit message from GitHub that indicates stories may be coming to Signal soon.

Many of my friends are reluctant to move over to Signal because of the lack of engagement functionality, which includes features like stories, bots, multi-player gaming. The latter two feel a bit far-fetched, yeah. It is easy for messengers like Telegram to implement them because it’s not end-to-end encrypted by default. Anyway, these are exciting times and I am keen on seeing where Signal heads. They promised usernames in 2021 too, fingers crossed.
