Instagram Might Soon Receive Video Calling Function
Over the past few years, Instagram has incorporated a lot of functions from its fellow contestants. 24-hour ephemeral stories, face filters, bookmarks, and hashtags are just handful of instances. On the other hand, the list does not end there as one more feature is anticipated to emerge on the photo-sharing platform.
It appears like the next stuff that Instagram is going to launch out is a feature of video calling. As per a report by WABetaInfo, a well-known account on Twitter that traces alterations in beta builds of WhatsApp, recommends that Instagram group is operating to launch out the function to video call other people, within. This indicates that it has not been seen in any of the Beta editions and stays in the pilot phase of testing. As per the report, this function will be available via personal conversation when both users are active. According to the report, as for the timeline this function will be rolled out in upcoming months, and will be obtainable both on Android and iOS platforms.
Instagram on its end has answered to this report and claimed to the local media, “We do not answer on speculation and rumors.” So, we will have to wait and look if and when this feature of video calling hits on the platform.
Most lately, the app rolled out GIF-support for Stories on Instagram. You might now be allowed to include GIFs in your Stories on Instagram. On clicking to the icon of Stickers, consumers might be allowed to view a different segment of GIFs. Instagram might allow consumers search for GIFs of their preference in database of Giphy. Similar to Stickers, these GIFs can be positioned anyplace on a Story in Instagram and can be altered with size. On the other hand, consumers might find their Story in Instagram to be more interactive when overstated with GIFs in place of Stickers.
