Today, the F8 Facebook conference has gotten underway and during the conference, some new features about Instagram were announced.
The big news for this update is the Video chat option. Rolling out globally in the very near future, you will be able to have 1on1 video chat and also group chat. What is also to note is that you will be able to minimize the video chats and continue using Instagram.
The other major change will be to the explore feature. Content will now be organised into categories, to make it easier to find content that will be relevant to you.
Lastly, Instagram is making it easier to share with 3rd party applications as well. They have announced arrangements with GoPro and Spotify to start, and you will be able to share from those two apps to your IG stories, and subsequently edit the images before posting to your stories.
So what do you think of the changes? Let me know in the comments below.
