Instagram has been working diligently testing a host of new features this month. In the last few weeks alone, the image-sharing platform has acquainted the ability to share YouTube Music to Instagram Stories and tested a new monetization tool for creators, a repost feature, and an updated UI with no Shop tab. Furthermore, the platform is dealing with a ‘Nudity protection’ feature that will automatically cover objectionable photos in chats. While some of these features are yet to arrive at clients, Instagram has now begun testing another new feature that allows you to add notes in DMs.
Instagram recently begun carrying out the feature to certain clients, and it’s as of now accessible on some of our gadgets running version 254.0.0.19.109 of the app. The feature shows up as a new section underneath the search bar on the chat page. It shows a button to allow you to add a new note, followed by notes from clients you follow.
Tapping on the ‘Your Note’ button opens up a new page that allows you to add a new note for your followers. A description at the top of this page states that your followers will not be told when you add a note. Notwithstanding, they will actually want to see your note for 24 hours and reply with a message. The page likewise incorporates a Share with section that allows you to share your notes to “Followers you follow back” or “Close friends.”
When you share a new note, your followers can reply to it by tapping on the note on the main chat page. This opens up a text input box with the actual note, a profile photo, and the user’s Instagram handle. Also, it will show how long ago the user shared the note.
