I just checked v10.31.6.0 update and got a new pop up on the main screen which tells that "Friends stories are back on the right"!
Check screenshots for more info. Additionally, they separate Friends stories and Subscription stories. You can also quickly navigate to the chat with a friend or watch the story again.
Oh, Just got a new minor update during this test :P
