A common advertisement type on Instagram is a post that features more than one image, something that regular users are not able to do. While regular users can, of course, stick images together, this feature is one that allows you to swipe side-to-side to see separate photographs within a single post.
It appears, however, that this feature will soon rollout to the public…
First noticed by Droid-Life, Instagram version 10.7.0 — currently rolling out to beta testers — is allowing some to select multiple photos to create an album that could then be shared with their followers. This is done by long pressing on an image in the gallery section until a prompt appears letting you know that you can select up to 10 photos. After that, you can go through and add filters to each photograph individually before publishing the album.
Although many are seeing these options, they aren’t actually able to successfully share their posts featuring multiple photos. It would appear that this half-baked feature started rolling out to users before Instagram had actually planned it to. Hopefully, we will see multi-photo album functionality become available to all Instagram users in the near future.
If you are interested in joining the Instagram for Android Beta Program, you can check out their blog post. You will need to join a Google Group and agree to their conditions to become a beta tester. Afterwards, you will start receiving beta updates on your Android devices.
