Instagram said it is testing a new way to encourage teens to update their safety and privacy settings.
If your account is set to private, your Reel will only be visible to your followers, it added.
The feature could help to highlight important messages from friends that they do not want to be lost in the inbox and could offer more visibility than posting to Stories.
The feature could also be useful for creators who post frequently but want to highlight a specific post.
'Take a Break' is a feature that shows up for people, as they have been scrolling for a certain amount of time.
Users can also use this to find content that they have recently deleted or archived, check out your search history, see the links they have visited and the amount of time spent on the platform and download information.
As per the report, the photo-sharing platform is also testing a revamped interface for posting Stories that will make it easier to mention other accounts or add a location to a post.
This feature is being tested with a small percentage of Instagram's global community and expanded based on the learning and feedback from the Instagram community.
The tool could help Instagram boost engagement at a time when it's reportedly losing users, especially younger ones, to competing platforms like TikTok.
"With 'Collab', you can invite a collaborator to your Feed Post and Reels and so they can share the content with their followers," the company noted.
Any accounts set as a favourite will appear higher in the feed, regardless of their popularity or other signals used by the algorithm.
This information also allows the platform to personalise user experience.
Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform said that the new translation feature will be available globally.
Inspired by the upcoming Super Follows feature of Twitter, Instagram is now working on a tool that will let creators post exclusive content to their Instagram stories only available to subscribers.
Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram added the ability to view Stories on the web in 2017 and added direct messaging to desktop late last year.
