A new post-preview feature is being rolled out by Instagram, the popular photo and video-sharing platform. This upgrade allows users to see their posts before making them public, which seems quite intriguing, doesn’t it?
At the moment, Instagram users can only view their posts on their grid after they’re published. The preview post feature allows users to see their posts prior to publishing, make any needed changes or tweaks, and then share them in their final form.
Before this update, creating grid photos for Instagram required users to utilize third-party apps. If you’re unfamiliar with grid photos, they divide a single image into multiple posts that create a larger, cohesive picture when combined on a user’s profile.
This new feature enables users to create grid photos within the Instagram app itself, eliminating the need for third-party apps or extra tools.
Meta is currently testing this new feature with a select group of people who have the most recent version of the app installed. As of now, there’s no official word on when it will become widely available to all users.
How to activate Instagram’s post-preview feature
To give the post-preview feature a try on Instagram, follow these steps:
1. Visit the Play Store and update your Instagram app to the latest version if needed.
2. Open the app and start creating a post.
3. If the new grid option is viewable, you can begin using the feature.
Should you be unable to access the feature, you’ll have to wait until it’s available for everyone.
