You can now lurk the Instagram Stories of strangers even easier, thanks to a new update.

Instagram Stories, a Snapchat-like feature that debuted earlier this year, will be given the spotlight on the Explore tab of the Instagram app.

The Explore section displays a range of photos and videos from users you don't already follow. Now Instagram Stories -- photo and video slide shows that appear for a day then vanish -- will also be added to the mix.

Instagram shared that Stories already average 100 million daily viewers. Putting them front and center on Explore will most likely help that number rise.

Instagram confirmed that the update rolls out this Tuesday and users must be on Instagram version 9.5.0 or above to take advantage of it.
