At this point, why not

Airbnb is testing out stories on its mobile app because hey, why not. The feature, which has appeared on everything from Snapchat to Instagram, to Netflix, is now coming to the vacation home service, because apparently some kind of mystical 'app story' god is not yet satisfied with how many story features humans have created, and needs to sate its great thirst.

Airbnb's take on stories is called 'Travel Stories'. The feature is sadly only in beta, so you'll have to wait with bated breath for this much-coveted feature to grace your phone screen.

Each Travel Story will consist of 8-10 videos with a maximum length of 10 seconds long.
