Have trouble adding several photos to your story?

Instagram has not finished introducing the Multiple Photos feature in Stories to the whole world yet, so this issue can be a result of that. The feature may not be available in your area. If you can not see the Multiple Photo icon when you try to post a Story, updating the Instagram app to the latest version might help. If that does not even work, hang on till Instagram introduces this new feature to your area.
