Instagram Updates Carousel Feature to Boost Creative Flexibility

Instagram has released new updates to its app.

The popular social network now allows for landscape and portrait photos to be uploaded in carousel format. Instagram first rolled out carousels in February but until now photos were limited to squares.

“Now, when uploading your photos and videos, you’ll have more creative flexibility with the ability to share in landscape and portrait formats,” the company said online.

However, it’s worth noting that “all photos and videos in your post must be shared in the same format,” meaning a carousel must consist entirely of portrait, landscape, or square images.

Instagram added that you can now edit tagged people after you’ve posted and, on iOS, you can save these posts as drafts if you aren’t quite ready to share them.

Those under the age of 25 spend more than 32 minutes a day on Instagram, on average, while those age 25 and older spend more than 24 minutes a day, according to the Facebook-owned company.
