You can now send disappearing photos to your friends on Instagram, courtesy of the latest update to the app’s Windows 10 PC and Mobile versions. The update bumps up the app’s software version to 10.849.31563.0 for Windows 10 Mobile and 10.849.31554.0 for the PC version. It allows Instagram users to upload as many as ten photos in a single post as well as a disappearing photo or video.

That means you can now flick through the images in a manner similar to a gallery. While the feature just arrived on Windows 10 devices, it was available for quite some time to Android and iOS users.

On the other hand, the disappearing photo or video feature borrows heavily from Snapchat, including the ability add stickers and edit the disappearing image before sending it via the Direct Messenger.

The update is part of Instagram’s efforts to expand its offerings, hot on the heels on a recent feature that lets you use the app while offline. More to the point, the addition of those features to the Windows 10 ecosystem marks the growing rivalry between these social media and instant messenger hybrids.

Also, despite Windows 10 Mobile’s very small market share, Instagram’s development team obviously wants to make the experience of using the app equal on all devices. How long will these efforts last? We’ll see. But it’s a positive thing for the Windows 10 Mobile platform to have a such a gigantic developer on its side while fighting for a couple of new users.

If you are already using Instagram on Windows 10 PC and Mobile, you can now download the latest update via the Windows Store.
