Instagram made a much-unexpected announcement recently regarding a new Instagram Update. The photo sharing app is presenting a new method of sharing on the network. Users can now post several pictures and videos in a single post. Previously, this feature was not available and only single posts could be made at a time.
The app’s new feature allows 10 videos and photos in one post. The new special posts will be displayed as one on the stream. Therefore, the new format will not disrupt the previous design. Moreover, users will be able to swipe to view the rest of the content.
“When uploading to your feed, you’ll see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos. It’s easy to control exactly how your post will look. You can tap and hold to change the order, apply a filter to everything at once or edit one by one. These posts have a single caption and are square-only for now. On your profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of your post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see.”
First Look And Release
All in all, the new scrapbook-like format looks beautiful and well-thought out. All frequent consumers will enjoy this feature. People who have a hard time picking the best picture are anticipating its release. Additionally, this will favor the users who find it annoying to view too many pictures of the same event. The best picture can be selected as the thumbnail of the album.
Instagram announced that the feature is available with version 10.9 of the iPhone app. However, the actual roll-out might be a bit delayed. There is a lot of anticipation for this new release. I guess we will have to wait for this brilliant new update so we can share of all our memories!
