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)

 Facebook-owned Instagram has built a “Parent’s Guide” focusing on privacy, interactions and time management for parents who have teenage children using the platform.

“We’ve included the basics of our app and description of our tools, plus a discussion guide for how parents and guardians can have an open conversation with their teens about Instagram,” Marne Levine, Chief Operating Officer, Instagram wrote in a blog post late on Thursday.

The 10 listed discussion questions have been designed to help parents learn more about how teenagers are using the social media app and to ensure that the app is being used in a positive way like discussing whether they want to keep their accounts public or private.

For its one billion app users, the app also offers other tools like comment controls, the ability to report unwanted interactions and most recently, a suite of features to help users manage time on the app.
