Instagram has added an extremely requested feature – the ability to delete posts from within previously uploaded carousels.

Instagram’s New feature to delete a single photo from a carousel post
Now, after you have uploaded a series of images and/or videos, you will be able to remove specific posts from that series by tapping on the three dots menu, selecting ‘Edit’, then clicking on the small trash icon at the top left corner of the post you want to delete.
As a result, you will be able to better manage your Instagram posts as well as ensure that you won’t have to delete and re-upload a carousel set if an error occurs.
Carousels now dominate the app’s post formats, and a study by Mention/Hubspot indicates that they are more engaging than either single images or video updates. This format is also particularly valuable for brands because you can add more context by adding frames – and now, you’ll be able to manage your carousel posts in multiple ways, which, if necessary, will be useful.
Shake to Report Feature
In addition, Mosseri notes that Instagram has added a new ‘rage shake’ feature that, if you shake your phone when Instagram is active, will prompt you to report an issue. Some apps, including Facebook, have a ‘shake to report’ function that allows users to share technical issues or glitches more quickly, and to do so as a reflex action.
Alternatively, if you find yourself shaking your device violently as a result of an issue with an app, perhaps you should take a break from social media for a while.
As of now, users on iOS can delete a single item from a carousel post, while Android users will be able to do so soon; however, ‘rage shake’ is only available in the US at this time.
