Instagram is introducing a new feature that users are either going to love or hate. Facebook-owned photo sharing app Instagram has rolled out a long-awaited feature that will now allow users to share multiple photos and videos in a single post. The carousels will feature the first photo or video of the group in your Instagram feed just like other posts, but allow users to swipe to the left or right to see other content uploaded in the same batch.
Instagram New Feature: Share 10 Photos And Videos
Only the first photo will show on your profile grid and in your friends’ feeds, with an icon in the top right handInstagram is introducing a new feature that users are either going to love or hate.
The Facebook-owned social network has announced that you can now share up to 10 photos and videos in a single post, meaning you no longer have to choose just one to sum up your experience.
The pictures appear as a slideshow, so your friends and followers can swipe through if they want to see them all.
Only the first photo will show on your profile grid and in your friends’ feeds, with an icon in the top right hand corner or blue dots underneath to indicate that there’s more to see.
“Whether you’re creating a step-by-step tutorial, sharing the different elements of an outfit, or the best bits of a recent holiday, you can now share more than just one moment without worrying about over-posting to your feed,” said Instagram.
“Unlike Instagram Stories that disappear after 24 hours, posts with multiple photos and videos will live on your profile – allowing you to add more depth to the moments you want to share with your friends and community, in a permanent way.”
“With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember. Now, you can combine up to 10 photos and videos in one post and swipe through to see them all,” reads a statement on Instagram’s blog.
In other words, Instagram wants to lower the bar for what users consider to be “Instagram-worthy.” The company has spent the past year trying to come up with ways to increase sharing and decrease pressure around posting to a feed full of people’s most highly curated moments.
