The company did not reveal the percentage or the location of users it is testing these or when the feature is coming to everyone else.
Recently, it was reported that Instagram is soon going to add a memorialisation option for the account of someone who has passed away. This was discovered by reverse-engineer Jane Manchun Wong.
Replying to her tweet, the account of Instagram’s PR team confirmed that this feature is indeed in the works. “Yes, we’re making changes to help people identify if an Instagram account belongs to someone who has passed away. We’ll have more to share on this at a later time,” reads the tweet.
Recently, Instagram rolled out the web support for sending Direct Messages (DMs) along with supports for viewing Instagram Live videos.
The live video streaming happens in the same portrait mode — and in the same size — as it does on users’ smartphones. However, thanks to the bigger screen space, you get to see the comments on the side of the ongoing live video instead of how you see them at the bottom on a smartphone on a transparent window making the viewing experience a little better on the web.
