Facebook page admins can now reply to Instagram DMs from FB

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Over the years, Facebook has purchased many successful businesses but has for a large part kept these services separate, at least as far as the public can observe. But now we're slowly starting to see that change, as Facebook Page admins become able to respond to Instagram Direct Messages right from their inbox.

In a press release for the Facebook Communities Summit, the social giant has announced integration that makes it easier for users managing pages to communicate with their followers on the photo-sharing service.

Instagram sets new rules further restricting all self-harm content

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Social media has drastically changed how we humans engage with each other and see ourselves in terms of self-worth. Anything can be dangerous in excess, but the impacts of social media on our individual psyches should not be ignored — especially when it comes to those who engage in self-harm activities. In light of this, Instagram, which you might have heard of, is taking steps that it feels are in the right direction in helping those aforementioned people.

WhatsApp Web adds picture-in-picture video playback for YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook

Monday, January 28th, 2019

A year ago, WhatsApp added picture-in-picture video playback in its iOS app. It wasn't until October that the feature made its way to Android in beta, then a few weeks ago, it rolled out to the stable version of the app. Now, it's making the switch from mobile to desktop, as PIP videos have appeared on WhatsApp Web.

You need v0.3.2041 of the web app to get PIP videos working.

Facebook working on unified, encrypted backend for Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, also considering cross-platform chat

Friday, January 25th, 2019

According to a report in the New York Times, Facebook is in the early stages of merging the backend of its three popular messaging apps. WhatsApp and Instagram — both acquired by Facebook after independent success — and the separated Messenger app will share the same infrastructure by the end of 2019 or early next year.

To be clear, all three will continue to function as standalone apps, but they will all benefit from the end-to-end encryption already implemented in WhatsApp.

Instagram lets you add those ridiculous Story filters to existing images and videos

Friday, January 25th, 2019

Instagram nowadays is synonymous with three words: Stories, filters, and ads; and the first two are at the crux of the latest addition we spotted in the app. After allowing you to apply filters à la Snapchat while taking photos and videos for your Stories, Instagram has added the option to use those filters after the fact.

Say you have already recorded a cute video and you think it'd be elevated with some bunny ears, or you took a selfie that would look great with purple glitter all over, or you have a ridiculous GIF that could be made even more ludicrous with a large open mouth animation, you can make those edits now.

Instagram lets users post to multiple accounts, but only on iOS for now

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Instagram influencers will tell you, that life is hard. If they maintain several accounts with different scopes and specializations, it's easy to switch between one and the other, but it's not easy to post common photos and videos to more than one. They'd have to do it from scratch for each. However, that might be changing as some users on iOS have started noticing the option to share their post to other accounts they own.

Instagram accidentally rolls out horizontal scrolling interface

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

Instagram is on a mission — a mission to make its mobile app harder to use. Between forcing an algorithmic timeline and bloating the app with more and more unrelated features, it has turned from a simple photo-sharing app to Facebook's way of capturing the post-Facebook generation. Users of the service caught a glimpse of an in-development UI, after Instagram accidentally rolled it out to everyone.

Instead of a timeline that scrolls vertically, the new interface has posts on a horizontal scroll.

It sure looks like OnePlus sliced off some of the 6T’s bezel in this ad

Friday, December 21st, 2018

In an age where smaller screen bezels are a selling point, a few companies have been caught modifying the appearance of their phones in adverts. One recent example was the Lenovo Z5, which had no bezels and no notch in the initial images, but the real phone had substantial bezels and a notch. The latest company do this is OnePlus, which seems to be trimming the 6T's bezels in advertisements.

Instagram continues to absorb other platforms’ features with new music suggestions in Stories and Q&A Live feature

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Not content to simply absorb all of Snapchat's features, Facebook-owned Instagram is now making a play for the music recommendation/performance demographic and aiming to become a hotspot for Live Q&As. The platform has introduced a feature into Stories (the ephemeral feed at the top of the app) that lets users request, receive, and jam out to song suggestions, as well as a new, more official format for Live Q&A sessions.

The music feature, rolling out today in regions where the app's music library is currently available, is accessible via the sticker section when you add a new video or image to your story.

Instagram lets you send short voice notes in Direct messages

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Instagram's foray into messaging is slowly expanding. What began as a simple messaging section for users to communicate without leaving the image-sharing app is now a quasi full-fledged messenger with support for GIFs, tight integration with Stories, video calling, disappearing media, and more. The latest addition that began rolling out yesterday is voice messages.

If you think about it, voice notes are one of the most unconventional features for a platform that relies on visuals in its essence — they're much more prevalent in messaging apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, and Facebook Messenger.
