Following their ‘Live Video Functionality’ feature in Stories that was rolled out last month after the announcement was made last year in November, Facebook very-owned, photo and video-sharing platform, Instagram, has a new feature for it’s photogenic’s.
“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,” writes in Blog post.
On posting, your followers can see them by simply swiping them from side-to-side or left-to-right.
Users can upload multiple images or videos by tapping on a new dedicated icon. In addition, Instagram has let you have filter and manual editing options for each image or video.
However, one thing that still remains is the caption. Instagram for now has kept a single caption for all the 10 posts and a square-only photo or videos. There was no mention of whether this would be looked up-to.
This update is available as part of Instagram version v.10.9 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. Users have to update their apps in order to get this new feature.

This multi photo/video post feature might look similar to that of Instagram Stories but with the ability to comment and like.
Notably, also Facebook’s-owned, social messaging platform; WhatsApp earlier this year got an increment in its media sharing limit that was previously capped at 10 raised to 30. This change allows WhatsApp users who love to share bulk images.
