Instagram announces video calling and more for us


Photo-sharing app Instagram has a slew of features for us to lay our hands on in the coming weeks, further making the whole experience fun and games.

Starting with the most-rumoured one (the one available for its other members of the family), the video-calling feature is now introduced on Instagram as well. To be made available in a few weeks, the video-calling feature can be accessed by simply heading to any chat box in the Direct section, tapping the camera icon on the top right corner, and you will be able to commence a one-on-one or a small group chat.

The Instagram Stories section now allows you to share Stories directly from third-party apps such as Spotify and GoPro with more apps soon to get included in the list. You are simply required to tap the Share option, select Instagram Stories as your platform and you are good to go.

Additionally, the various Face filters, texts and stickers available for Instagram Stories can now be designed by third parties for you to try on and add to your whole collection. New creative effects from Instagram accounts such as Ariana Grande, Baby Ariel, Liza Koshy, Vogue, and Buzzfeed are soon to make their way to the app.
