Instagram, the popular social media platform, is expanding its notes feature to include video statuses, revolutionizing the way users share their stories.
About the New Instagram Feature
Unlike the existing ‘Stories’ feature, the new video notes have a time limit of approximately 2 seconds. In addition, users can only record using the front camera within the Instagram app. Additionally, they cannot upload from users’ phone storage. Once posted, these video notes will be visible to close friends and mutual followers for a duration of 24 hours.
How to make the most of this new video status feature?
Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Open the Instagram app and navigate to your inbox.
- Locate your photo in the Notes tray and tap on the camera button.
- Press the record button to capture a quick 2-second video using the front-facing camera.
- In order to provide context, add text to the video and hit the post button.
Other Features of Instagram to Watch
Instagram is also rolling out an exciting update. In addition, it will allow users to reply to notes using more than just text. Users can now reply with audio, photos, videos, and stickers, opening up a whole new realm of creative possibilities. Users can send replies using emojis or photos. Additionally, the receiver will directly receive the message to the recipient’s inbox.
In addition to these fantastic updates, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced some innovative AI-powered features on the horizon. Leveraging the power of generative AI, Facebook and Instagram users can look forward to two new features: Emu Video and Emu Edit. Meta’s innovative Emu model serves as the foundation for these features. In addition, it will enable image generation.
