Instagram is experimenting with more features for photographers; Sectioning albums, Poses for Stories

Instagram keeps a constant supply of updates coming for its user base to keep them hooked to its app. this time, they are working on new developments to enhance its photo and Stories functionality.

The new features are currently under test mode and were discovered by our go-to reverse engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong, who shared snapshots of her latest find on Twitter.

Here is a brief description of the upcoming features.

Sectioning albums

According to Wong’s tweet, the feature would allow users to categorize their photo albums – only on their Android apps. A user from India also commented on the tweet and said that he had experienced the feature for sometime before it disappeared.

This indicated that perhaps the Facebook-owned app is already testing the feature on some users to assess their response. However, we can’t say much before an official announcement is made by the company.


Poses for Stories

The second feature mentioned by Wong is the integration of ‘poses’ for the Stories mode. According to Wong, the feature would allow users to take four photos – one every three seconds and stitch them to create a stop-motion story.

As of now, the idea seems pretty interesting and we – along with the rest of Instagrammers cannot wait for it to roll out.

Instagram is notoriously popular for cloning features of Snapchat and TikTok but it seems like the photo-sharing app is not shy of mimicking old-school photo booth.
