Previous Instagram Updates
Since Instagram is all about sharing photos, it has always focused on quality and offering new features to users constantly. In 2017, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users received a new update from Instagram which allowed them to take sharp images having a wider hue of colors.
The Live Photo support enabled iPhone users to upload photos in GIF formats on their timeline. Instagram is always bringing surprises to its users and as reported in January, it came up with the live video feature for Instagram Stories which grabbed the attention of its fans worldwide.
With 150 million worldwide users, Instagram feels that the number is still not enough for a networking service. With the Live Video feature and now the impending multi-photo option, the app is looking to lure more users.
Instagram has not yet confirmed or divulged any information on the exact release date of its multi-photo update for Android. Therefore, Android users of Instagram will have to wait in anticipation for the update to arrive.
Those interested need to make sure that they have the Instagram app installed on their Android devices. Ones who do not have it, can install the app from the Google Play Store.
