Instagram for Android might soon be Getting a new Button to Create Different Kinds of Content!

To say that Social Media has come a long way would be an understatement. The platforms that were initially created to just connect the people from around the world with each other, have now become larger than life. Facebook and the apps and services it owns constantly keep on evolving and introducing new features and updates to keep the attention of users intact.

On Instagram, users can create posts, share stories and even record IGTV videos. To make all three of these options available at one place, Instagram might soon be adding a new button. According to App Researcher Jane Manchun Wong, testing for the new button is already in the works for Instagram for Android and it shall be added to the profile section.

The button in question will most likely be represented by a “+” button with the label “new” attached with it. Once the button is clicked/tapped on, the option to create different kinds of content i.e. Feed Post, Story and IGTV video shall pop up.

Although it might be new to Android, a number of iOS users have claimed that they already have the button available for months now. If you are an iOS user, feel free to verify this claim.


There’s no doubt that a single button for allowing users to post different kinds of posts can be quite helpful. However, some users are concerned that with the new button, there will be three different “+” buttons for generating posts. So unless Instagram has something in mind to reduce the clutter, the new addition can result in inconvenience to the users.
