Instagram now lets you view the last active time of users

By : |January 22, 2018 0

The last seen or last active feature which was present in popular apps Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp is now available on Instagram. Instagram is rolling out a new feature which lets users check the last active status of their friends and family members. The Next Web first spotted the big change.

From the direct messages screen, people you follow or have previously chatted with can now see when you were last using Instagram.

The new feature can be accessed by going into the Instagram Direct messages section of the app. It shows the last time stamp when the user was online on the app; it has options like ‘Active now’, ‘Active today’, ‘Active 1h ago’, ‘Active 24m ago’ etc. To change the visibility of your Active status, users will need to go to Settings via the three-dot menu in the app, and toggle the Show Activity Status feature.

However, there’s  a catch though, opting out of activity status means you won’t be able to see other people’s activity status either. The new feature is rolling out in an update for both iOS and Android users.

Additionally, Instagram is also testing a feature called Type. The feature appears at the bottom of the Stories camera and offers options for written stories mainly. You can choose from several fonts. You can select a picture in the background and write over it or you can simply select a font and Instagram will automatically select a background for it.
