A Total of 200 Million Users are Pushing Stories in Instagram on a Daily Basis

Instagram Stories might be a clone to the Snap Stories, but that didn't keep users away from the service. Instagram today announced that a total of 200 million Instagram stories are being used by users all across the globe, which is up from 150 million mark in January. 

Upping the ante from 150 million to 200 million in just three months is not a small achievement. To celebrate the occasion, the Facebook-owned company is rolling out some new features to the application for both Android and iOS. 



The update takes the Android app to version number 10.16.1, whereas the iOS app will grace version number 10.16. The exciting feature added in the new update is the selfie stickers, which allows you to use a selfie as a sticker along with all the usual customizations. 

Also, the update brings geolocation to four new cities- Chicago, London, Madrid, and Tokyo. Furthermore, after the latest update, you can create a shortcut of your favorite stickers, which is a handy feature to have around.

Instagram Begins Blurring Sensitive Posts, Rolls Out Two-Factor Authentication for Everyone

Instagram is trying to make the mobile photo-sharing application safe place for everyone. Today, the company announced two new features that will change the way we interact with the application.

In the near future, Instgram will start blurring out photos and videos that contain sensitive photos and videos. How it works? 
Well, If someone reports a post and Instagram's moderation team agrees that the content isn't suitable for everyone, they'll be blocked by default. You’ll have to tap a button before seeing the sensitive post.


Instagram is also launching "two-factor authentication" for everyone. This security feature adds an extra layer of security to your Instagram account by requiring a code (that is sent to you via SMS) every time you log in. You can enable this feature using the gear icon in your profile page.

Instagram wants to be more like Snapchat





Instagram is trying to look like Snapchat. Today, the company announced two new features that will change the way we interact with the application.

The first feature is "Live Video" as part of Instagram Stories. Stories was introduced some months ago, but it seems people wanted even more. Now you can do live videos and share it with all your followers. The video will disappear when the live video ends.

  




Instagram is also launching "Disappearing photos" for direct messaging. These photos will be deleted after the other users sees it and leaves that conversation, so it won't be there for much time. Overall, these two new features seem like a handy addition to Instagram.
