Instagram has confirmed that they’re removing the photo maps element from the app.
“Photo Map wasn’t widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities”
You can still use geotags for content searches. For any photo with geotagging enabled, you can click through on that location to see more posts from the same area.
In addition to this, Instagram’s also added a new option to optimize your camera settings for variable light levels.
