During the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung announced the Instagram mode. This new feature is directly built into Samsung Galaxy S10's stock camera app just like any other feature like the panorama or the pro-shooting feature.

The mode brings the Insta filters directly onto the camera software and lets one upload the picture straight to the Instagram app with stickers, gifs and all that jazz without closing Samsung's default camera app.

To showcase the feature, Instagram head Adam Mosseri took a selfie on stage with DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile business.
