Galaxy S8 + Galaxy S9 not optimized for Instagram


My Galaxy S8 and from reading posts the Galaxy S9 has the same problem, when watching Instagram stories, the screen does not adjust to the 16/9 dimensions, cutting 15-20 % of the story off and often making  phrases, remarks, etc. not legible. Samsung claimed to have "Solved" this problem by taking the app out of full screen mode, but that is not an option on our phones. Someone please fix this, it shouldn't be too difficult and it's super annoying for what's supposed to be a top of the line smartphone.

My Galaxy 9 is all screwyscrewy 😜

My Instagram where I go the most is a big hassle. Can't use arrow in corner to shoot and share something cool.
