Instagram adds a host of new features to its mobile and desktop interfaces / digital information world


Instagram recently released and tested a bunch of new features and updates that are worth taking the time to review. So, let’s tackle the 5 most interesting in the following paragraphs.

Instagram Live is enjoying great popularity today. This is far from a feature that is used quite awkwardly by users who are just looking to share mundane details of their day. With talented and experienced content creators now populating Instagram, Live is used for entertaining games, interactive sessions, QnAs, video game streaming, and whatever comes to mind. The first of our five features involves Instagram Live gets a workout feature. This is great news, especially for first-time streamers or for people looking to experience a really big event. The training mode will allow users to test lighting, audio and other details before going live, minimizing the risk of errors and issues down the line.

The second update of the day concerns the hashtag interface spotted by Samarth. Instagram has added a new tab for Reels, making it much easier for users to access new, fun videos. When searching for a hashtag, users can now check and see if any reels have been created on the topic as well. The reels are enjoying great popularity these days, which undoubtedly makes Instagram happy for their efforts to provide TikTok with proper competition. The tab even has its own CTA button, which entices users to use #reels, encouraging them to create their own new content for the platform.

While we are talking about Reels, we might as well talk about the third part of our itinerary. Many users have multiple Instagram accounts, there is no doubt about it. However, the interaction between these different accounts is rather limited, since Instagram does not particularly recognize the different accounts of a person. However, a new feature will allow users to post their reels to multiple accounts. It’s a feature Instagram has definitely added to make sure the reels have more reach, but users will still be happy to have this interchange between accounts.

The following feature is cool, as it relates to the desktop version of Instagram. The desktop interface is definitely the black sheep of the Facebook family of social media platforms, as it doesn’t allow users to post any form of content. It is essentially a glorified ease of viewing for the posts that other users make. However, this new feature allows you to add a little more creative control to the mix. Users will now be able to edit the posts they post to Instagram from the desktop version as well as the mobile version, according to Alexander Paluzzi. However, this feature is still in beta testing, so don’t expect to see it for a few months.

Instagram’s latest feature involves another feature from the desktop version that is currently in beta testing. The Explore button near Instagram, a feature that was only recently rolled out to all users, is receiving post processing. Explore Nearby is a feature that allows users to view nearby places of interest in a particular area, even distributing their own respective IG accounts, if applicable. A screenshot revealed by a serial leaker on social networks Alexander Paluzzi reveals that the button has also been added to the desktop. However, it is also not fully available at the moment.
