Instagram has been among the biggest names in the world of technology for quite a while now. The app has gained mainstream popularity and has improved a lot in 2016. 2016 was a big year for this Facebook-owned app, as it witnessed many new features being introduced in it. Many of these features were Snapchat inspired, leading up to many users actively using them due to familiarity.
Instagram is now testing multi-photo albums. The report is based on news published in Droid Life, which states that Instagram is now testing a feature that will allow the users to share multiple photos in one single image. This is not like what the ‘Layout’ app offers. However it is in a more scrollable, carousel-like format. In the past this feature was only with the advertisers, but if the reports are to be believed, it might soon reach the regular users as well.
This would be an interesting development for the app, and something that could allow the users to share their experience in a better manner. Be it multiple photos of the same thing, or a set of shots showing an image in its horizontal beauty, Instagram is looking forward to an update that will allow users to be more creative with their images. The Instagram stories feature is already quite successful, and the app is now looking forward at improving their offerings. These multiple photos would indeed be a good start.
As of now the update is available only to a limited number of users. The update comes as a part of Instagram 10.7.0 update for the Android users. As of now we have no updates on when the iOS users would be getting it, or when the feature would release for everyone. However, this is indeed an interesting feature, and we expect to see more people using it soon.
