In the past few months, Twitter has had to deal with a number of problems, from Elon Musk’s takeover to appointing a new CEO. A new text-based app from Instagram could soon be another problem for the social media giant.
Instagram’s new text-based app
Instagram may start a new text-based social media app as soon as next month, according to reports. Lia Haberman’s ICYMI Substack newsletter leaked promotional materials and other information that were later picked up by The Verge.
The marketing slide that was stolen doesn’t say what the app is called, but it does say that it is “Instagram’s new text-based app for conversations.” The slide shows that Instagram users will be able to type up to 500 characters in a letter. Users will also be able to add links, photos, and videos. Users will also be able to quickly follow the same accounts they already follow on Instagram. This will make it easy to get a lot of people to watch your videos quickly.
Key Feature Of Instagram’s New Text-based App
Here are the kay features of New Instagram’s text based app.
- User Control: Instagram’s new app lets users govern their interactions. They decide who can reply to and mention their accounts. Instagram’s community guidelines and user blocks will apply to the new platform.
- Compatible with other Social Media Apps: Mastodon will also work with the new text-based platform. Instagram’s presentation promises compatibility with Mastodon. “Users on these other apps can search for, follow, and interact with your profile and content if you’re public, or if you’re private and approve them as followers.”
