Instagram has recently unveiled a host of new features with its latest updates. From increased reel length to the ability to pin specific images to the top of your profile, the new features will give users more flexibility of options in how their profile appears.

Firsly, the length of reels has increased to a maximum of 90 seconds. The other major change to reels is that now users have the ability to import audio. Another new feature coming to reels is stickers. You can now stick them onto a reel, rather than just using them in stories. So your cat videos can now be longer, we can hear the cute purring, and they can have kitty stickers on top. Awesome!

The other major update is that you can now choose up to 3 individual posts, images or videos to ‘pin’ to the top of your grid. This will be particualry helpful for anyone who needs to highlight something you’re offering that you want people to take notice of, rather than having it keep disappearing down your grid.

Users can choose which photos will be pinned to the top of a profile grid by tapping on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of a photo or video and selecting “Pin to your profile.”

Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri says that they’ve implemented these new features because “Your profile is your place, so we’re looking for more ways to give you control over that experience.”

The new features should be available from today. Tell us what you think!
