When you post stories on Instagram, you must have noted that Instagram uses the camera in full-screen mode. If you try to put pictures captured from your phone’s camera in an Instagram story, its aspect ratio will be different. You can either zoom-in the picture, but you will lose a part of the picture or video, or the second solution is to make the story using Instagram’s camera. Samsung wanted to equip the Galaxy S10 with a solution to this issue. The South Korean giant, in collaboration with Instagram, added the Instagram mode to its stock camera application.

When you open the Camera on your Galaxy S10, you can find the Instagram mode on the left side next to the Food. This mode will run your phone’s camera in full screen. Any picture or video that you shoot in this mode, can be uploaded on Instagram as it is. You don’t have to zoom in or crop a picture anymore. The Instagram Mode, indeed, is a great utility for Instagram bloggers and users.

Now that the Galaxy S10 owners got used to the Instagram Mode, it started disappearing all of a sudden. It was noted by a Redditor that this happened only after the recent Instagram update.
