Instagram Update Makes it Easier than Ever to Upload Multiple Photos/Videos to Stories


Instagram’s Stories feature has done rather well since its launch and has arguably become one of the most-favoured features of what is by all accounts a highly popular and dare I say influential app. Users have long had one major bugbear with the feature however, namely the inability to upload multiple media files at once.

Well that’s about to change with the release of Instagram’s latest update, which finally allows users to upload up to ten photos or videos simultaneously. This enhanced ease-of-use will be of particular interest to those who like to carefully curate their stories as they will be able to preview the media as a whole beforehand, and for those who are often forced to wait for a stronger internet connection before uploading.

In a blog post announcing the update, Instagram explained exactly how the new feature will work:

“Go to upload media and you’ll see a new icon at the top right corner of your screen. Tap it to begin selecting up to ten photos or videos from your gallery. On the edit screen, you’ll see a preview of all the media you’ve selected lined up at the bottom, you can tap each one to edit individually with stickers, text and all the other creative tools in Instagram Stories. When you’re done, all of the photos and videos in your preview will upload at once in the order you selected them.”

That’s not all however, as the new update also makes it quicker and easier to add location stickers to a photo or video when uploading them to your story. Say you’ve had to wait a while to upload and have now strayed a little from the location in question’; the new update will allow Instagram to suggest location tickers pertaining to places near where the media was captured, rather than your location at the time. As Instagram say, this makes it “easier to tag that great taco spot, even if you didn’t exactly remember what it was called.”
