Embed stories in AMP pages

Web Stories are a full-screen immersive content experience that user’s tap or click through at their own pace. They live on the open web with their own URL, making them easily shareable. This guide teaches you how to embed Web Stories in an AMP valid page and surface them to readers.

Include the amp-story-player

Web Stories rely on the amp-story-player component to embed and play stories on AMP valid sites. Implement the amp-story-player by including the custom script in the head of the document.

<script async custom-element="amp-story-player" src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-story-player-0.1.js"></script>

Then placing the amp-story-player element HTML in the desired location within your page’s <body>.

<head>
  <script async src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0.js"></script>
  <script
    async
    custom-element="amp-story-player"
    src="https://cdn.ampproject.org/v0/amp-story-player-0.1.js"
  ></script>
</head>
<body>
  <amp-story-player layout="fixed" width="360" height="600">
