27 June, 2018, 18:38
With this new update, Instagram becomes the third platform from Facebook to offer video calling feature after Facebook and WhatsApp. Video chat is flawless for groups.
The app has also rolled out new camera effects.
If you ever wanted another reason to spend even more time on Instagram, you're in luck, the company just announced its new features.
The Instagram camera is getting a bunch of new effects made in collaboration with a number of high-profile entities, like Ariana Grande and Buzzfeed, which you can get either by following the associated account on Instagram or by spotting it in a story and adding it to your own camera.
Video Chat allows you to start with one member, and as more people join the chat, the video will expand to show as many as four members at one time. Video calls can support one-on-one conversations or a group of up to four people.
Starting a video chat requires that you swipe into your Direct inbox and open any message thread. When you're ready to move on, tapping the red phone icon at the bottom of the screen will end your participation in the chat. Opening the tab will reveal a tray of topic channels including one called "For You" that contains posts that are linked to your interests. This includes a "For You" channel, which has a mix of posts tailored to your interests.
The update to the "Explore" section comes with "newer ways to discover your interests on Instagram", the company wrote in a blog post late on Tuesday. Calls can be minimized to a picture-in-picture view that lets you continue to use Instagram as you're chatting. If you'd like to remove a topic channel, press and hold the channel and select "Mute" from the menu. The For You section is the default, but there are also categories for sports, travel, nature, style, art, music and much more. Ariana Grande, Buzzfeed, Liza Koshy, Baby Ariel and National Basketball Association collaborated with the company on the new video filters. Note that you will need to follow these accounts for their camera effects to be available in the Stories camera. If you aren't a follower but you see an effect that you love, you can tap to try it on and add it to your camera. You can download Instagram from the App Store for free.
