Why is Instagram Carousel not working?

A number of Instagram users have complained that the Carousel option has stopped working for them as they can’t upload multiple pictures in one single post.

Instagram Carousel is still working with the only difference that the ‘Select Multiple’ option has now disappeared, as reported by many people.

All you have to do is to press and hold down on the picture in order for the ‘Select Multiple’ feature to appear. Once you do this, you can add up to 10 photos or videos just like before.

Most people who have complained about the issue come from iPhone users as the feature is still visible for those who use Android devices.

The Verge has reported that according to a Facebook company spokesperson, the issue with the carousel feature on iOS devices is attributable to a bug: “We’re aware that some people are having trouble accessing the ‘Select Multiple’ photos feature in Instagram due to a bug in the latest iOS update and are working on a solution.”

Instagram users react

It’s safe to say that the issue has become a number one trending topic for many users who reported about the problem on Instagram and Twitter.

“Instagram has changed how you create carousel posts. The feature hasn’t disappeared. But it’s confusing a lot of people,” said one Twitter user.

“I spent two hours trying to upload a carousel downloading the app and reinstalling because I thought it was a problem on my account,” tweeted someone else.

Another person explained: “Instagram haven’t removed the carousel feature, just press & hold the first image you want to upload and the rest will be available to select.”
