When it comes to Instagram, a perfect caption is almost as important as the photo itself. So that is why it is quite frustrating when you make an error on the word or want to change the thing that you incorrectly wrote when crafting your caption or leaving a comment in Instagram, the app simply does not allow you to do edit or modify again.
But Instagram’s latest update, which is live in the App Store as of Monday afternoon, changes that. You can now edit photo captions after they’ve already been posted. Version 6.2.0 also introduces a new discovery tool in the Explore tab, shows off some small design changes, and now lets you edit your photo’s location. But you still can’t edit comments you’ve made on other friends’ photos, though.
This matters as some of us who make mistakes while writing, have to delete the stuff that we have already posted and again go over all the editing, cropping and all other things that come along as well. So it basically saves a lot of time. So thanks but no thanks Instagram. This feature should’ve been here ages ago.
Besides the editing feature, Instagram’s discovery tool, called Explore, has some new things to show off. It now sports a magnifying glass icon instead of a compass, and you can browse for new content by Photos or by People, just switch between these two tabs. Explore presents you with photos and people you might find interesting, based on accounts you already follow, photos you’ve already liked, and photos that are trending in your location.
The Profile icon also received a small tweak, showing just a silhouette instead of the card like image it had before. And if you go to the profile page of a user with a lot of followers, you’ll now find suggested accounts hidden behind a drop-down arrow instead.
