Instagram will soon release a new option regarding photo sharing. The option would allow users to share multiple photographs at a single time. This feature would be available exclusively for Android users.
Thus, with the new feature, people will be able to post more than one photos at a single time. This means that you can create photo albums with a certain theme. You can even take albums from your phone gallery and post them on Instagram.
At the moment, this feature is only available for advertising companies. So far, they have shared several photos and users can swipe through them horizontally. However, Instagram announced that the feature would be available soon for everybody. After it is introduced, the estimation is that more than 600 million people would be able to use the new option.
Instagram explained how this would work. Users will be able to select up to 10 photos from their gallery, apply filters to whatever photos they want, and then upload them on their timeline under the form of an album. The followers can open the album, swipe through the photos, and like them one by one.
However, users cannot upload entire albums at once. They have to select each photo they want placed in the respective album and choose if they edit it or not.
The feature is already available in the new Instagram version for Android, Instagram 10.7.0, which can be found as we speak on Google Play. However, only a few of those who already have the new version can benefit from the new photo sharing option. It may also be available in the Android beta version. The company is testing it on only a few users and see how they find it.
The option would be available for the wider public soon, after the testing is finished, but only for Android users. It is not sure when or if the version would be available for iOS users.
Instagram wants to maintain their popularity among the photo sharing apps by constantly offering surprises to their users. This multiple photo sharing feature comes after several other options, including the live video feature that has captured the fans’ attention. Also, they can have fun by uploading photos in GIF versions.
