Instagram has been on a roll recently, adding the ability to give your stories and posts a soundtrack just days after debuting a video chat feature. The app's 400 million daily users can now liven up their stories with 15 second clips of popular songs from Instagram's music library with just a few taps. Here's how to do it on iPhone:
Privacy can seem elusive on the iPhone, with apps normally encouraging people to connect. Instagram is no different, with direct messaging features now available within the app. Sending photos or a message to friends inside Instagram can be convenient, but did you know that your activity status is shared with friends?
The best feature on Facebook is the "unfollow" option. It allows you to stop seeing posts from a friend without having to unfriend them. Instagram has rolled out a similar feature to its users. The "mute" option allows users to control what posts they see in their feed by hiding content from certain accounts without unfollowing them.
After the Facebook data breach, Instagram promised to release a data downloading tool for users to obtain a copy of what they shared on the social media app. Users will be able to use the tool to download their Instagram photos, videos and messages. Today the company made good on their promise by rolling out a Data Download tool to all users.
