Instagram Adds Caption Editing, Improves Discovery

Good news, Instagrammers! You can now edit the captions on your photos after they’ve been published. Instagram rolled out a new update earlier this week that allows users to edit their captions and also added improved recommendations via the app’s Explore menu.

Mobile photographers have long been frustrated by the lack of editing capabilities within the Instagram app, and Instagram addressed that in a blog post that was published on Monday.

This has been one of the top requests that we’ve heard from the community, and we’re excited to finally bring it to you today.

The only caveat is that edited posts will display a note indicating that the post has been modified after its original publish date.

In addition to the editing capabilities, Instagram also revamped the Explore tab of their mobile application, making it easier for users to find interesting content and people to follow. The Explore tab has two sections: Photos and People. The photos tab is the same as it’s always been, but the people tab showcases interesting accounts for users to follow along with an inline follow button.

The new version of Instagram is available now via the App Store and Google Play.
