Instagram strikes again, but this time its all about uploading multiple photos and videos in one post.

Yeah, you’ve heard me right, just one post — What a time to be alive!

Instagram has been full of updates this past year, from stories to live video to posts in feed. Now it is even easier to upload and share your adventures with your followers with the newest Instagram update.

With this instagram update, you can now select up to 10 photos and videos, edit them, switch up the order and post them all at once with just a few taps. When looking at your feed, you will see the first photo or video with a little icon that will enable you to swipe through to see them all. However, the posts will all have one single caption and are square-only for the time being.

 

Surprise! 🎉 Swipe left on the post above to see more. Starting today, you can share up to 10 photos and videos in one post on Instagram. With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember. 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 a profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of a post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see. And 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. This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.9 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. To learn more, check out help.instagram.com.
