Mentions, Boomerang achievable within history and links under test: here are the news of Instagram for the function used by 100 million users every day
100 million users use Instagram Stories every day, and now the moment the function comes, it receives the most consistent update since its introduction last August. The most interesting novelty is certainly the attempt to introduce links in the Stories, but for now only a test phase. If it were made available to everyone for, it would be a big step forward for everyone, not just for artists and brands. Just think of the possibility of publishing the link to a contribution that is being commented on.
Certain news for everyone instead, the possibility tag other users in their Stories, simply by writing the username preceded by a snail on the screen (see photo above): the interested party will receive a notification via direct message. By clicking on the name mentioned in the story, it will also be possible to preview his profile without having to abandon the story. The mention will also last no longer than 24 hours.
The latest update aimed at those who love Boomerang: henceforth instead of having to load the "boomerangs" from their own camera roll, they can be made directly using the internal camera of the Stories.
