Your Instagram posts may soon no longer be limited to a single photo.

Droid Life reports the latest beta for the app on Android devices includes an option that lets users put up to 10 images or videos in a single post. People who see it can then scroll through them. It's like uploading an album, basically.

The Verge also noted this Twitter user was among the first to spot the added capability.

Businesses have been able to do this for awhile now. For users, if you want to do multiple photos, you have to use one of the many collage apps, like Layout.

There's no specific release date for when this beta might be adopted as standard – and it's even possible that some features in it don't make it to full release.

Go here if you're interested in being a beta tester.

Instagram, by the last public count, had surpassed the 600 million mark for users. The app also noted more than 150 million people use Stories daily, and one in every five Stories results in a direct message from viewers.
