Big changes are in store for the way Instagram users load and view photos.
The popular social media app has just rolled out a new ‘Gallery’ feature.
Surprise! Swipe left on the post above to see more. Starting today, you can share up to 10 photos and videos in one post on Instagram. With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember. 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 a profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of a post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see. And in feed, you’ll see blue dots at the bottom of these posts to let you know you can swipe to see more. You can like and comment on them just like a regular post. This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.9 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. To learn more, check out help.instagram.com.
It’s a big change from the app’s current one photo only, square shaped post. Now users will be able to upload 10 photos or videos in one post. When uploading pics, or videos to share, users select multiple files, choose the order in which they appear and apply the same filter to all of the pics.
