Instagram allows users to delete a photo in ‘published photo collections’


Since 2017, Instagram has allowed users to combine up to 10 photos and videos into a single post, but only now, after about four years, is the company adding a way to delete a single photo or clip from a group, as Adam Mosseri, Instagram’s head, explained how the feature works. New in one of our recent weekly video updates.

You can delete a photo or video from a circle by first clicking the three-dot icon, then the edit button, at this point, swipe to the photo or clip you want to remove and then tap the delete icon. According to Mosseri, the feature is currently only available on iOS, although it’s coming to Android soon, and he’s also been quick to admit that it’s something Instagram should have added a while ago.

And if you live in the US, you can also access another new feature, called ‘Rage Shake’. If you’re using Instagram and something isn’t working properly, shake your phone, and doing so will bring up the error report interface in the app.

You can then tell the company what happened, and Mosseri says it will help Instagram prioritize the specific bugs it needs to address, but it should be noted that Rage Shake is currently only available in the US.

Both features won’t change the way you use Instagram, but they should be welcome additions.
