Instagram says hello with new features designed to give users more control over the app.
Instagram, one of the most popular social media platforms, continues to innovate. The company says hello with new features designed to give users more control over the app. The first of these features is the 'Silent Mode'.
Instagram's new service works just like the 'Do Not Disturb' setting on phones. When this feature is active, Instagram does not send any notifications to your phone. In the profile of users who activate this feature, it will be stated that they are in 'silent mode'. In addition, users who send messages will receive a notification that the person they want to reach is not available.
Users will be able to activate the new 'Quiet Mode' feature offered by the social media application for certain hours. When these hours are exceeded, Instagram will transmit a summary of the notifications received during this process to the user. Quiet Mode will be available in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom starting today.
Alongside the new Silent Mode feature, Instagram is starting to offer users more control over the platform. With the newly introduced feature, users will now be able to specify the content types they do not want to encounter. Users will be able to make the app more convenient for them by choosing the phrase 'I'm not interested' on Instagram's content algorithm. In addition, the 'Hashtag' and 'emojis' in the content and comments will be limited from the 'Hidden Words' section in the settings.
Along with all this, Instagram also announced that it has added a feature that allows parents to see their children's app settings. With the new setting, it is aimed to protect young people more than malicious people on social media.
It seems that Instagram has shaped the new features it offers on the basis of recent concerns about consumer protection, product and data security. So what do you think about Instagram and the new 'Silent Mode' feature?
