You can now combine up to 10 photos and videos in one post
The popular photo-sharing application, Instagram, has announced a brand new update to the platform with users now being able to “combine up to 10 photos and videos in one post”.
A new icon on the app will allow users to select multiple photos/videos which can then be edited before being posted. 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. 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. Here are some screenshots to show you how they’re displayed:
What does this mean for your Insta feed?
