Instagram users who’ve longed for an album-like feature may soon get their wishes fulfilled as Instagram will be testing out the "Album" feature with the Beta release of version 10.7.0 of its Android app.
Those who’ve managed to get themselves into the Beta will now be able to access the "Album Builder". With this feature, users can:
- Select up to 10 photos from their gallery.
- Apply filters to the photos selected.
- Post all of them up to their timeline in one go.
Once the album is up, followers can scroll through the photos individually.

Curiously enough, while Instagram has made it so that beta users can begin messing around with the "Album Builder", users are currently unable to post their completed Albums onto their timelines.
Instagram has yet to comment about this particular omission as of the time of writing, so we’re going to assume that the ability to post completed Albums onto the timeline will not be available until the feature goes live.
