For the truly devoted, Instagram isn鈥檛 just an app, it鈥檚 a lifestyle. Brunch pics, outfit inspo and makeup tips聽are all so much better filtered, in square form and with the words 鈥渓ink in bio鈥 below. And all the die-hard IG fans know that timing counts and not a single second should be wasted from snap to share (you don鈥檛 want to miss out on your real life, after all). Which is why time-conscious iPhone users should be psyched about the app鈥檚 latest update.


Instagram just enabled share extension with its latest update, meaning that it鈥檚 possible to upload to the 鈥榞ram directly from apps like Photos without ever entering Instagram itself.聽To access the new upload feature, update to the latest version of Instagram and open whichever app you want to share from. Press 鈥渟hare鈥 then on the Instagram button. The photo will show up in a screen where you can add a caption and聽upload.

The only caveat is that you won鈥檛 be able to edit the photos after you upload them straight from the camera reel, so your pics will have to be #nofilter good. Of course, you could always edit a photo in a separate app like VSCO Cam before you upload.

Maybe this is Instagram鈥檚 way of making up for their unpopular algorithm tweak聽last week?

What do you think of the new Instagram changes? Let us know @BritandCo!
