What are Instagram albums?

Instagram burst onto the mobile app scene in 2010 as a free photo-sharing and editing app. It rapidly gained popularity, securing 100 million active users by 2012; and was then bought by Facebook for $1 billion.

In February 2017, Instagram announced that it was launching a new feature, allowing users to share multiple photos and videos in a single post.

While Instagram hasn’t given the function an official name, many people are referring to it as Instagram albums. Users can combine up to 10 pictures and videos in an album, so followers can swipe through to see them all.

To post an album, tap “+”, then tap “Library” at the bottom of the screen, followed by the stack symbol. Now you can select up to 10 photos and videos from your phone’s library. Next you can adjust how each pic or video is displayed one by one, and then you can add a filter or edit each as usual.
