Today Instagram is excited to introduce a dramatically improved search experience, including the addition of Places Search, which makes it easier to discover new places around the world.
With Places Search, you can peer into just about any location on earth to see what’s happening right now. It’s great for researching exotic locations, exploring a new vacation destination or that hot new restaurant; taking a virtual look at a hotel; or just seeing whether it’s sunny at your favourite beach. You can even drop in on fashion shows and music festivals in real time, no matter where you are in the world.
Instagram is also introducing Top Search, which lets you search across People, Places and Tags all from a single search box.
With 300 million+ Instagrammers in every corner of the world, wherever events unfold — big or small, timely or timeless — someone on Instagram is probably there to capture it.” Places are a rich source of visual content and, for the first time, we’re able to show you which individual locations are trending on Instagram.
Instagram 7.0 is available today in Apple’s App Store, and for Android on Google Play.
