Instagram is drawing attention with the features it has tried and brought to the platform. Instagram, which recently introduced and updated the Reels feature, is now working on many new features. Here’s everything about Instagram group stories to come and new Instagram features to roll out:
New Features on Instagram: Instagram Group Stories and more
Instagram has been found to be working on “Group Stories” that users can add specifically for group chats on the platform. This feature, seen in the testing phase, is not known when it reaches the end user, but it seems like a nice feature for those who use and love group chats.
Another new feature is on the roles side. This feature, which is also recorded as auto advance / scroll, appears to be under development at the moment. This feature makes it easier for users to switch between Reels videos and watch the video in preview without having to open it.
In addition to Instagram Group Stories and Reels, a new feature is introduced in the Instagram Direct Message section, which allows adding GIFs and Stickers. This feature used in WhatsApp seems to have shifted to the Instagram side. The feature, which is presented with the addition of a starred section, allows users to send different sticker effects to each other.
Instagram is planning to make small changes like this one and wants to increase its popularity. Many features that Instagram has tested are on the rise. While most of them are found by users, some of them can remain as “tested functions”.
