Instagram officially introduced the ability for users to share multiple photos and videos in a single post, after several users spotted the feature being tested earlier this month.
Users of the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network who update their iOS or Android applications to version 10.9 can now add up to 10 photos and videos to a single post, and other users can swipe through those posts to view all of the content.
Instagram said in a blog post announcing the update:
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.
