Instagram wants you to share a more complete picture of your experiences in its classic feed, not just its Snapchat Stories clone. Today, Instagram launches the ability to share a mix of up to 10 photos or videos as a single carousel post that friends can swipe through. You can think of them as Instagram albums that collect permanent photos or videos around a theme. The feature rolls out globally on iOS and Android over the next few weeks.
“You no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember” Instagram writes. This furthers Instagram’s quest to be more than where you “only get to see the highlights”, that Systrom described as the motive behind launching Instagram Stories.
