New Instagram update lets iOS users post photos and video without ever opening the app



The last Instagram update brought with it a new logo and a split user base that either loved or hated the new design. Today’s 8.2 update is lacking the controversy but adding the ability to post directly to Instagram from Photos or other iOS apps.

Using the ‘share’ menu, iPhone users have long been able to post to Facebook, Twitter, Slack and other applications without needing to open them. Today, Instagram is joining the fun and giving its users the same ability. After downloading the 8.2 update (available now), users can select an image from Photos (or elsewhere) and use the share menu to post directly, even adding a caption in the process.

You will, however, have to open the app if you want to use filters or to tag other users.
