The social networking platform Instagram keeps updating its app to bring new features to enhance the overall user experience as well as to keep them hinged. Apparently, the social media giant is now gearing up to introduce multiple new and exciting features. According to a known tipster Alessandro Paluzzi, Instagram is currently working on as many as five new features that it may soon roll out on its platform. Let’s take a closer look.
The Five Upcoming Features
First on the list is could be an exclusive tab that the Meta owned company is seemingly planning to add to its platform. The tipster suggests that this tab will allow the creators on the platform to provide exclusive content to their paid members. To put it into simpler words, you can pay your favourite content creators to receive extra free content that will not be visible to regular users.
The next rumoured thing which Instagram is working on is the image replies. As pretty much understandable by the name the new feature will allow the users to reply to the stories by using an image. This feature is something that users cannot do right now and the platform will soon be bringing it as the tipster has also shared some screenshots.
A kind of similar feature that Instagram might add is the voice note feature. The screenshots suggest that one will see a voice note icon in the typing bar while viewing stories. This is a unique feature that will enable users to reply using their voice instead of typing out the message.
In addition to this, Instagram is also developing a new feature that will allow a user to share posts using a QR code. Even though the platform has multiple options to share images and videos, the addition of QR codes might save you from the additional steps that you have to take for sharing something. However, not much is known about this feature as of yet.
The last feature on the list that Instagram is working on is disappearing messages. This simply means that users will be able to send their reactions to Stories in Chats with Vanish mode. Once the reaction to the story is seen by the recipient, it just disappears. The Vanish mode is already available in Instagram chats.
