The platform has added several other new features recently, including the ability to save posts as drafts and “Stories,” which allows users to create Snapchat-like slideshows with photos and video.
Instagram said the update would come Wednesday, but did not give a specific time. An update earlier Wednesday offered a low-light feature for Stories.
