Instagram users will now be able to upload up to 10 photos and videos per post. Followers can view the stories by swiping through a carousel of images. In a press release, the company explained that the new features will allow for more complex stories and an easier user experience: “You no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember,” the company said. “Now, you can combine up to 10 photos and videos in one post and swipe through to see them all.” This also solves the common Instagram problem of users uploading many separate posts, and clogging up your Instagram feed. We all know that one person who just can’t stop posting photo after photo of their dog/baby/favorite new coffee shop.

The ability to upload multiple images and videos into one single post is actually not that new to Instagram. In fact, Instagram has had the feature for years, but it was only available to their advertisers. The company hinted at bringing the carousel feature to regular users, and today they’ve finally made the feature available to everyone. The Verge explains how to use it:

To create a carousel, you tap a new icon that mimics a photo stack. From there, you select the photos and videos you want to include. To change the order of the posts, you tap, hold, and drag. You can edit your photos and videos individually or as a group, but you only get one caption and location tag for your post. (Likes and comments are all grouped under the complete post, too.)

You can view Instagram’s Instagram post on the subject below, and experience the new feature for yourself. It’s pretty neat—anything that makes the social media experience slightly less annoying is okay with us.

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.
