According to Twitter users Jane Wong and Matt Navarra, the app could be getting four new features in the future. Spotify app users will be able to share a sticker of a song they're listening to on Stories, while GoPro users will be able to share footage shot on their GoPro.
Of course, there's no guarantee that any of these features will make their way to Instagram, as they're now just in testing.
Instagram is rolling out a slew of new features to bring Stories and chats to the next level.
With the new video-chat feature, Intagram users must tap the new camera icon at the top of a direct-messaging thread. Users can chat one-on-one with another user or with a small group and they can keep the conversation going for as long as they want. You can also minimize the video and continue the chat while doing other things on Instagram.
The trend seems to be holding up nicely, as Instagram announced today that it is testing out a new video chat feature. Once it's added, you can edit the content before sharing it in a Story.
Also being rolled out for Instagram are new augmented reality camera effects.
Instagram will also soon be rolling out a redesigned Explore page organized around topic channels like "animals, ' 'photography" and 'architecture'. If a user you follow likes to occasionally bulk upload, muting their profile, rather than unfollowing them, may be beneficial.
When it comes to Instagram, there's a bit more substance in the announcements.
People come to Explore every day to discover new ideas, people, and experiences.
Instagram is also apparently looking at adding a slow-mo recording feature to Stories. "It's unbelievable how many of these tools are about bringing us together". If you find a topic you like, you can see related hashtags.
'The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you'll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post'.
