If you noticed a new update for Instagram in the app store, you might want to stop what you’re doing and update it now.
Instagram has launched a new feature called “Carousel,” which allows you to upload up to 10 pictures and videos at one time in one post.
Mind blowing, right? We think so too. So no more asking friends which picture you should post, when you can now post them all.
“You no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember” Instagram emphasizes, as the motive behind the update is to be more than a place where you “only get to see the highlights.”
This new feature is tied in with the recent upgrade by adding stories, which works just like Snapchat, with the app erasing the image or clip after 24 hours.
Kevin Weil, Instagram’s head of product, explained it in an interview last December saying:
“[Instagram] became a place where people kept raising the bar on themselves in terms of the quality of what they had to achieve to post. We didn’t want that.”
While the launch of stories rubbed some people in a bad way claiming that it was too similar to Snapchat, hopefully, this update will have great reviews.
Upgrade the app and let us know what you are thinking.
