San Francisco, October 29: Instagram, owned by Meta, is currently testing a collaborative feature that permits your friends to contribute photos to your posts. Instagram head Adam Mosseri introduced this feature through a broadcast.
This innovative feature allows you to invite friends to participate in your feed posts. Before posting a carousel, you can activate the option for your followers to submit their photos and videos for inclusion in your post.
When preparing to post photos on your profile, Instagram offers you the choice to allow followers to submit their photos and videos. Importantly, these submissions won’t be added automatically; you must approve each photo and video before they become part of your post.
In the screenshot shared by Mosseri, an “add to post” button is visible in the bottom-left corner.
Additionally, Instagram is experimenting with a feature that will enable users to update their profile picture with a brief or looping video in Notes.
“Soon, people will be able to update their default profile photo in Notes with a short, looping video. You’ll still be able to share a thought via text to accompany the video. If you start seeing videos in Notes, let us know what you think,” Mosseri announced.
As shown in the demo video, a new camera icon will appear on the profile picture when users begin creating a note. From there, they can record a video to post on Notes.
