Instagram now lets you add photos and videos older than 24 hours in your Stories

By : |November 9, 2017 0

Instagram has announced a new feature that lets you add photos and videos that are older than 24 hours to your Stories. Previously, the user had to resave, take a screenshot or edit the metadata of the image so that it appears new in the library. Snapchat has a similar feature on its app since it launched Memories.

To access the new feature, just like you normally would, swipe up from the camera to open your Camera Roll or tap the gallery icon. Scroll to choose your photo or video, and tap to select what you want to share your story, which will disappear after 24 hours itself. The new feature allows your entire camera roll for Story Upload whereas previously you were only allowed to post recent photos and videos.

If you choose a photo or video that’s more than 24 hours old, you’ll automatically see a new sticker that helps you add context to when it was taken. The sticker can be rotated, resized, or removed as usual.


The new feature is available in the updated version of the Instagram app for Android and iOS.
