Improvements to Stories Uploads

April 24, 2018

Today we’re introducing a few updates that make it faster and easier to upload photos and videos to your stories.

You’ll now be able to upload multiple photos and videos to your story all at once. Whether you want to preview your entire story to make sure it’s just right or you’re waiting for a strong connection to upload all of your photos and videos from the day, it’s now faster and easier than ever to share to your story after the moment has passed.

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.

It’s also now faster to find the right place when adding the location sticker to a photo or video you’re uploading to your story. Now, when you’re sitting at lunch daydreaming about last weekend at the beach and you decide to share a photo, the location sticker will suggest places from near where your media was captured – making it easier to tag that great taco spot, even if you didn’t exactly remember what it was called.
