You can now upload multiple photos/videos to Instagram Stories at once

I've recently begun using Instagram Stories in place of Snapchat, and for the most part, the experience has been a great one. Now, it's going to get even better thanks to a couple new features making their way to the Android app.

The biggest change is the ability to upload multiple photos and videos to Instagram Stories at once. From the page where you usually upload content to Stories, you'll see a new button near the top right of your screen. Tapping this will bring up your gallery of photos/videos, and you can choose up to 10 of them to upload at once.

Once your content is selected, you'll see them lined up at the bottom. Tapping on each photo will bring it into a fullscreen view with options for adding stickers, filters, etc. as you normally would.

Instagram's also making it easier to find a location tag for where a photo or video you took was captured. Per Instagram

It's also now faster to find the right place when adding the location sticker to a photo or video you're uploading to your story. Now, when you're sitting at lunch daydreaming about last weekend at the beach and you decide to share a photo, the location sticker will suggest places from near where your media was captured — making it easier to tag that great taco spot, even if you didn't exactly remember what it was called.

These features are available in the Android app now, with Instagram noting they'll be available for iOS in a few weeks.
