Instagram has finally released an update to its Android and iOS apps, adding probably the most requested features of all time – caption editing.
Ahead of the update, users had to delete pictures with unwanted captions and start from scratch if they didn’t want to suffer public embarrassment.
With caption editing, you can easily go back and erase the typo posted alongside your image moments ago that is driving you a little nuts. Version 6.2.0 allows to edit photo captions after they’ve already been posted. To fix a typo in your caption or edit the image location, there is a new “Edit” option in the menu beneath the image. Once your caption is edited, tap “Done” and you will see the “Edited” option above captions that have been edited when you tap “Comment” on a post.
You can also add or edit a location. To do that, just tap “Add Location…” and enter a necessary location or tap “Change Location” if you want to edit it.
In addition to the aforementioned features, the new version of the service brings some changes to the Explore tab.
Instead of a compass, you will be presented with a magnifying glass icon, and allowed to browse for new content by Photos or by People—just switch between these two tabs.
“Explore” option may help to find new interesting information, based on accounts you already follow, images you’ve already liked, and photos that are added to your location.
Version 6.2.0 offers the following key features:
- Discover new people: Find interesting accounts to follow in the People tab on Explore.
- Search faster: Get quicker results with typeahead search.
- Edit captions: Fix typos or change your location.
- New icons: Updated Explore and Profile icons, plus other design updates
The new version of Instagram is available on the App Store now.
