Instagram has rolled out new ways to share moments by allowing the users to post to “Stories” directly from other apps.

Apart from “Spotify” and “GoPro,” more apps will be added to the “sharing to Stories” feature soon, Instagram said in a statement on Tuesday.

Also, the photo-messaging app has unlocked the ability for third parties to design unique, interactive camera experiences for users, allowing them to experiment with new effects in “Stories” with the “Try it on” feature.

To control the growing “hate culture”, the Facebook-owned firm has improvised its existing customized comment filter.

“Last year, we announced our offensive comment filter, which automatically hides toxic and divisive comments, particularly those aimed at at-risk groups. This new filter hides comments containing attacks on a person’s appearance or character, as well as threats to a person’s well-being or health,” said Kevin Systrom, Instagram Co-Founder and CEO.

Instagram is also testing the “video chat” feature and is planning to globally roll it out soon.

In the coming weeks, a new update of the “Explore” feature is also expected that would organise the content into topics and channels for quicker results, the company said. (IANS)

Photo-messaging app Instagram is testing a new feature that allows users to react to “Stories” with emojis, just as they can react on Facebook.

The feature being tested in the latest version of the app shows six emojies — clapping hands; laughing with tears; heart-eyes; shocked/surprised; sad; and fire.

It also appears that to react — and to get emoji reactions — both the user and the uploader must have the updated version of Instagram installed on their devices.

When asked about the test, an Instagram spokesperson gave IANS an affirmative answer.
