iPhone user and you’ve been itching for a way to upload your Live Photos to Instagram, then good news: you can now do exactly that by turning them into Boomerangs. Instagram is rolling out this new functionality right now, giving users a somewhat easy way to upload Live Photos to Instagram Stories. Best of all is the fact that you won’t need to update the app to begin doing this – assuming your app is on the current version, you should see these features pop up automatically.
Instagram Stories screen, swipe up to summon the upload panel. Select one of the Live Photos you’ve snapped, and then press down on the preview you see to bring up a 3D Touch menu that will allow you convert the photo to a Boomerang. From there, you can upload the Live Photo to your Instagram Story.
Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger said on Twitter that most people who are on version 10.3 should have these features by now, so it sounds like there may be a few users left waiting for the moment.
