Looks like Facebook and WhatsApp are not the only platforms Mark Zuckerberg is working tirelessly to improve!
The genius behind one of the world’s biggest platform is doing everything it takes for users to feel safe and secure on social media.
In order to about this new user-friendly policy, new updates have been rolled out for all platforms including Instagram.
For this platform, the new updates are being said to show the ‘last seen’ status of the user.
According to Gadgets360, the feature can be accessed by going into the Instagram Direct messages section of the app. It shows the last time stamp when the user was online on the app.
It has options like ‘Active now’, ‘Active today’, ‘Active 1h ago’, ‘Active 24m ago’ etc. We have learnt that the feature is currently available only for a few select users, albeit on both Android and iOS.
On the other hand, the word is that the application will also be getting screenshot alerts very soon too! This will be a security feature for Insta Stories.
Apart from that, TheNextWeb reports that Instagram is also testing a new ‘Type’ feature that enables text-only, written stories on the mobile app. While Instagram Stories have always been based on images and video, Instagram has been testing the new Type feature that apparently shows up next to other choices such as Boomerang, Rewind, and Superzoom.
