The new Samsung Galaxy S10 has an 'Instagram mode' to more easily post to your Stories — here's how it works

Galaxy S10

  • Instagram Stories have become wildly popular for users to share Snapchat-like updates with their friends and followers.
  • Samsung’s Galaxy S10 phones, released earlier this month, are equipped with an “Instagram mode” that lets phone users seamlessly post to their Stories from the phone’s camera.
  • Here’s how the Galaxy’s “Instagram mode” works.

If you didn’t know popular Instagram Stories are, here’s an eye-opening statistic — roughly half of Instagram’s 1 billion users take advantage of the Stories feature on a daily basis.

The Stories feature has been wildly popular since it launched in August 2016, and surpassed Snapchat’s total user count in early 2017. It’s become an easy way to share status updates and interact with followers, and a simple alternative to publishing a more permanent Instagram post.

Samsung is capitalizing on the draw of Instagram Stories with a new feature on its latest line of Galaxy phones. The three iterations on the market — the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10 Plus — are equipped with “Instagram mode.”

The feature allows you to post a photo or video to your Instagram Story straight from your Galaxy phone’s Camera app. It takes a few steps out of the process of posting to your Instagram Story, which is sure to be welcomed by the app’s faithful users.

The current Galaxy S10 lineup consists of three models — the S10, S10e, and S10 Plus. And they all ship with Samsung’s “Instagram mode.”

Samsung announced the partnership with Instagram at its Unpacked event in February, when it revealed the Galaxy S10 phones. Samsung even brought out Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, to demonstrate how to post to Instagram Stories from the Galaxy S10.

Using Instagram mode is incredibly simple on the Galaxy S10. The only prerequisite: “Instagram mode” won’t appear as an option in your Camera app unless you have Instagram on your phone, and you’ll need to log in to make it work.
