Instagram’s New Update Just Changed the Game—Again

Spread the love

Remember Dec. 14, 2016 as the day your camera roll got a lot smaller, as there’s no need to screenshot posts on Instagram anymore. The photo-sharing platform just rolled out its best update (IMHO) since Drafts, and now you can save other users’ posts for later.

You heard me: No longer do you have to clutter your phone with screenshots or try desperately to retrace your steps to figure out which food blogger posted that delicious-looking spaghetti squash recipe last week. Now you can simply tap the bookmark button to save the post, and it will appear in a new area on your feed that only you can see, essentially creating a private Pinterest board.

Starting today, you can save posts you’d like to revisit later. Now you’ll see a new bookmark icon underneath posts in your feed. Simply tap it to save a post to a new, private tab on your profile. There you can see all the posts you’ve saved — and they’re only visible to you. When you stumble upon a funny video you want to remember, a new outfit you like or even inspiration for an upcoming vacation, you can now keep track of favorite posts right from your profile. To learn more about saved posts, check out Saved posts are part of Instagram version 10.2, available today for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play.
