Multi-photo Instagram galleries are coming soon, when you’re looking at your Instagram and select few options or have a look at your post that some of your special moments that doesn’t want to overwhelm your followers with a bunch of different pictures in a row, you feel keenly the absence of the ability to post a gallery as a single update. This happens when  you’ve seen ads that feature fun little carousels, letting you swipe through a number of different images all contained within just one post. Now it looks like Instagram is closer than ever to opening up that feature to everyone.  Inside the latest beta release of Instagram for Android is evidence that this new feature is making its way to the app’s 600 million users.

A new update pushed to beta testers on Android reveals the beginnings of an album-posting option, which lets you, select multiple images from your phone’s camera roll to include in a single post. After selecting you can apply a single filter to all of them, or tap into each photo to apply separate effects before posting everything in a single gallery. Your followers and other Instagram users will be able to like individual photos in each post. This sound like something that will change your life forever and this won’t make you wait anymore.

Instagram added the feature for advertisers back in March, 2015, and since then it’s been the exclusive tool of those willing to give the company money in order to hawk their wares and services. We wish this is a sure a good sign for us in the cheap seats where we will be able to enjoy the same privileges sooner rather than it is too late. After reaching out to Instagram for more info, the information is kept quiet for time being.

Once the clearance is done, Instagram will move onto other common feature requests like a native reframe function and scheduled posts. After some time, the company has instead seemed more focused on copying Snapchat and live video.
