And Samsung Mobile CEO DJ Koh described Instagram mode as best Instagram experience users could get on any device in the market currently.
As the name may suggest, this new mode makes sure the Instagram experience is baked in the Camera app on the S10 devices. Yes, you can access the new mode just like any other regular Camera app features such as panorama.
Hi! Thank you for reaching out. Hope you are enjoying your Galaxy S10, You'll be able to find Instagram Mode when you open your Camera app and swipe to the right side on the options at the bottom. You should be able to see it at the very end. Please let us know how it goes. ^Luis

Instagram mode on S10 allows you to directly upload your image stuff on Instagram stories. Not only that, you also get access to Instagram stickers as well as host of editing tools without leaving the native Camera app on the device.
Here’s a video showcasing this new feature:
However, there was a caveat – this new mode didn’t ship with the device out of the box.
The good news now is that support for this new mode arrived with a new update, which you should see as soon as you boot up your S10 series device for the first time.
Of course, that’s not completely true if you have a carrier branded device, but things are picking up at their end as well. For example, AT&T released an update yesterday that enables this mode.
Given the popularity of Instagram, needless to say S10 users have started using the feature right away. Here are some experiences taken from social media platforms:
