Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram is reportedly rolling out the “ability to ask questions” in its “Stories” feature that would let users respond to questions posted in “Stories” with detailed and long text.
Along with the polls and emoji sliders that are popularly being used to answer questions on “Stories”, with the new feature Instagram seems to be trying the “open-ended questions” format, tech portal Android Police reported on Sunday.
The users in Italy and Indonesia are reportedly seeing it on the app but the feature is yet to be rolled out globally, the report added.
Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform Instagram will now ask new users for their date of birth when an account is created.
Previously, Instagram users were required to confirm they were ages 13 or older when signing up, but they didn’t have to provide an exact birthday.
The new addition is Instagram’s attempt to better protect young users and provide a ‘more age-appropriate experience overall’.
The firm noted that it will pull birthdates from Facebook for user’s who have connected their profile and editing your birth date on Facebook will do the same on Instagram.
For those who do not have a Facebook account, they can add or edit their date of birth directly on Instagram.
