We recently learned that Facebook was working to bring self-destruct messages to WhatsApp. And now the company wants to implement a functionality of the messaging app in another of its most popular applications, the photography app Instagram.
In 2018 Mark Zuckerberg’s company introduced a feature called “Best Friends” on Instagram that allows users to share more intimate stories with a select group of followers. Now the platform works in a similar function.
Jane Manchun Wong, a security researcher and developer who is an expert in discovering functions in the testing phase, discovered that Instagram will include a function already present in WhatsApp that allows hiding specific stories from specific users.
The New Instagram Feature
With the implementation of this new Instagram feature – which we remember is currently in the testing phase – users will have an option to select those contacts or followers with whom they do not want to share a specific story.
As previously mentioned, WhatsApp Messenger has a similar function so that users can hide their states from certain contacts. Be that as it may, we do not know when this novelty will be launched (or if it will finally be launched) on Instagram.
At the end of last year, Jane Manchun Wong also revealed that the developers of Instagram were planning to incorporate a novelty that would cause a small vibration to occur when users press “like” on the photography social network application. So it is good to know that Facebook continues to try to improve both Instagram and WhatsApp.
