You no longer need to worry about making a silly typo in your Instagram captions. On Monday Instagram rolled out an update which gives users the ability to change photo captions after they have posted an image.
On their official blog Instagram said:
“This has been one of the top requests that we’ve heard from the community, and we’re excited to finally bring it to you today.”
You can find the new ‘edit’ option in the menu beneath your image. Perhaps the best part of this update is that If you make a change, the image won’t be re-posted so no-one will know that you’ve edited it. The editing is currently not available when commenting on other images, so if you do make a typo in a friend’s photo, you’ll have to delete your comment and repost it.
The new update, which is available on both iOS version 6.2 and Android version 6.19 also includes changes to the explore feature.
The first change is that the icon is now a magnifying glass. Once clicked the explore tab now has two tabs: Photos and People. You will notice that the photo tab hasn’t really changed, it still contains the same scrolling grid of photos and videos. The new People tab, however, highlights interesting accounts for you to discover. Some of these accounts could be people you know but haven’t started following yet or alternative accounts which might be of interest.
