Instagram Copies Snapchat Again, Allows Users to Share Old Images

Instagram Stories

In the latest update, Instagram has come up with a new feature.This update is part of Instagram Version 22 for iOS and Version 18 on Android.

This feature enables the users to add photos and videos to their story, even if they were taken more than 24 hours ago. As result of this update, anything from the camera roll section can be selected and shared instantly with friends.

The rest of the procedures are pretty much unchanged though. Media can be selected by a normal swipe up from the camera, opening the camera roll or by a simple tap on gallery icon. While scrolling through the photos or videos the user needs to tap to select what is to be shared.

If a photo or video, which is more than 24 hours old is selected, a new sticker will automatically be seen. This sticker will help to add context to when it was taken. Just like all other stickers, this one can be rotated, resized or removed from the story before sharing it.

If one seeks to learn more about these recent updates he can check out the Instagram Help Center.
