Instagram Update for iPhone adding Live Photo-to-Boomerang and wider colors

If you’re an iPhone user and you’ve been itching for a way to upload your Live Photos to Instagram, then you can now do exactly that by turning them into Boomerangs.

Instagram has rolled out this new functionality right now, giving the user an easy way to add Live Photos to Instagram Stories.

Best of all the fact that the user doesn’t need to update the app to begin doing this – assuming the app is on the current version, a user should be able to see the features pop up automatically.

So how do you start using this feature?

From your Instagram Stories screen, swipe up to access the upload panel. Select any of the Photo you’ve snapped, and then press down on the preview to bring up a 3D Touch menu
where you get an option to convert the photo into a Boomerang. From there, you can then upload the Live Photo to your story.

That is not too bad, but it would be nice to be able to upload a Live Photo without the need to convert it into a Boomerang first. Still, beggars can’t be choosers as they say, and even though this isn’t the most direct way, at least these adds support the Live Photos where there once was none.

This isn’t the only new Instagram feature iPhone 7 and 7 Plus users are getting, as the app has also been updated to support wide color capture now. Apple had brought Instagram on stage during its iPhone 7 launch event to show off this very feature. By using wide color capture, you should even notice that your Instagram photos boast stronger, more vibrant colors.

Since these new features don’t require an update, it’ll be hard to explain whether you
have the features or not unless you try them for yourself. Mike Krieger who is the co-founder of Instagram said on Twitter that most people who are on version 10.3 should have these features by now.
