Instagram Is Adding Support For Live Photos and Wide Color Gamut On iOS
Instagram is working to make sure the promises it has made to include wide color gamut support for iPhone 7 owners with its recent update. The news broke via tweets by Instagram cofounder Mike Krieger, and the additional features won't require an update to utilize.
Users can go ahead and start messing about with the new features which is now available for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users so they can capture and display wide color images. Instagram is also currently working to add support for Live Photos on iOS, where faithful Instagram users can utilize them as Boomerangs, or animated GIFs that loop forward and backward on repeat. They can then be inserted into Instagram Stories to make an eyecatching surprise that stands out from regular photos.
Of course, despite all the new updates for Instagram app users on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, there still is no support for the telephoto lens (2X optical zoom interface) for the iPhone 7 Plus. It was meant to be available last year, but it has yet to garner support. Still, the fact that Instagram is working to add more features at the moment to the app is a good sign, and we'll likely see it added going forward.
