1. Reply While You Browse
With this feature, Instagram users will not have to enter the inbox in order to reply to someone. You can reply to someone even while you are browsing the feed. This will be quite useful as you will not lose track of the feed because of having to reply to someone by going to their DMs.
2. Quickly Send To Friends
Now, you can just tap and hold the share button in order to reshare posts to your close friends without wasting any time.
3. See Who’s Online
Another addition to the list of upcoming Instagram features includes online tapping. You will be able to see who is free with whom you can chat at a particular time. This information will be available at the top of your inbox.
4. Send Messages Quietly
You can now send messages to your friends without them receiving any notification. You just have to add “@silent” at the end of your message and tap on the send button. Your message will be delivered but they will not receive any notification for that. They will know only when they open Instagram and view your chat.
5. Keep It On The Lo-Fi/ Lo-Fi Chat Theme
Another one on the list of upcoming Instagram features is this amazing Lo-fi chat theme. To make the chat conversations feel more personal on Instagram, the Lo-Fi chat theme has been launched.
6. Play, Pause, And Re-Play
Now, Instagram users will be able to share a 30-second preview of a song available on Apple Music, Amazon Music and Spotify (coming soon) and their friends will be able to listen to that song directly through the chat window.
7. Create Polls With Your Friends
Earlier you had the option only of creating a poll and sharing it in your Instagram stories, but now, you can also create polls directly in your Group chats on Instagram and enjoy this feature with a selected group of people without having to add a story for the same.
These are the seven features that are going to be launched on Instagram, in which countries, in the beginning, this is not yet known.
