Instagram now lets you upload stuff older than 24 hours to your Stories

Instagram is finally letting users upload photos or videos that are older than 24 hours.

Instagram story update

Today, Instagram is pushing out an update that allows users to upload a video or picture that’s older than 24 hours. Meaning, you can upload anything from last year or week to your Instagram Story.

Previously, users could just screenshot or alter the metadata on the original image to trick Instagram into thinking this was a recent photo.

Thankfully, no more trickery is needed. Instagram will even let you add stickers that show the date when the photo or video was taken.

Instagram’s Blog writes:

Starting today, you can add photos and videos to your story, even if you took them more than 24 hours ago. Now, you’ll be able to easily find and choose anything from your camera roll and share it instantly with friends.

Just like you normally would, swipe up from the camera to open your camera roll or tap the gallery icon. Scroll to choose your photo or video, and tap to select what you want to share.

If you choose a photo or video that’s more than 24 hours old, you’ll automatically see a new sticker that helps you add context for when it was taken. As with all stickers, you can rotate, resize or remove the date sticker from your story before you share.

Your move Snapchat.
