If you have an Android device, you might be happy to know that some cool new features are being tested right now on the Instagram Android app. The testing that Instagram is doing right now on the Android app could change how you view and share pictures with your friends and family. The new feature allows you to share multiple photographs and videos in one post.
Instagram Testing Multi-Photo Posts on Android
The new feature allows you to put 10 photos of your choice into one post. It is similar to how Facebook runs the photo album feature. This new sharing tool will allow you to share even more with your friends and family without spending too much time making posts and uploading the pictures. It is important to note that this new multiple photos in one post feature
It is important to note that this new multiple photos in one post feature is not currently available in the regular Instagram app for Android. You will need to download and install the beta version of Instagram in order to get this new feature right now, which means you have to be a beta tester for the Instagram app before you can access this beta release.
This new beta is not available for iOS devices, so you are really getting a behind-the-scenes look at this new feature since it is exclusively available to Android app users. Of course, once the beta test is over and the feedback is reviewed, we will know more about when it will be coming out officially on iOS and Android. The official Instagram release of the multiple photos per post feature will come out down the road to both operating systems as long as reviews are good from the beta test. If you download the new beta test, remember that giving feedback on the feature is important so that if any changes need to be made, it can be done before the official release of the app.

The feature will give you the ability to put up to 10 photos in one post, which makes this like a photo album on Instagram. We do not know how the new feature will show up in the news feed section due to the fact these posts are not really going live on the beta test. That means we cannot really see what the final product will look like, but it would seem to be similar to the carousel advertisements you see.
All you do if you want to upload the multiple photos for your post is go through the same process you would normally, and then hold down one photo. You can then select various photos and even videos. Remember, there is a limit of 10 photos or videos with this new multiple photos feature.
If this new feature goes live, we do not know if there will be changes made between this beta version and the final version. If people involved in the Android beta version give feedback about changes that should be made, then we will probably see some changes implemented before the final version hits both operating systems. We also do not know a date of when the final version will be hitting Android devices, so we will keep you updated on that if we hear more.
It seems right now that creating photos and making those photos the best that you possibly can is a huge thing for Instagram. That might be why this new multiple photo feature is being tested out, and then we will have an album-like feature available on Instagram that everyone can enjoy and use. The more Instagram moves towards these multiple photo features, the less it seems that single photos are going to be emphasized on the popular social app.
