Facebook owned an Instagram app is giving users more authority over their notifications’ by rolling out would mute application notification for a chosen period of time much like WhatsApp’s mute feature. Called ‘Pause All’, the feature would switch off notifications for anywhere as long as eight hours.
“The option was spotted by online networking master Matt Navarra who at initially detected the equivalent in testing a month ago. Given the amount of time, we spend on social media. it’s great to have an option to close it down completely every now and then,” the report said.
The component has so far been taken off on iOS and the beta application on Android.
“Instagram is especially outstanding for driving obsessive behavior among younger users. Having the capacity to shut it off for periods will help people distance themselves from the online world,” the report added.
Distinctly, Instagram is reportedly trying a donation sticker on its Stories features that would offer fundraising and donation tools for charity or personal reasons. The feature appears to be like what Facebook offers with its fundraising and donation tools. Facebook has been facilitating such fundraising tools since 2015 and it dropped fees related to those donations.
“Instagram is working on ‘Donation’ sticker. It lets users start fundraisers for their favorite non-profits,” tipster Jane Manchun Wong tweeted on Monday.
“Over the past few years, Instagram has been experimenting with what payments would look like on the platform, but it has so far only released test features to allow select users to book spa appointments and restaurant reservations,” The Verge reported.
