Instagram adding video calls, a new Explore page, and more

  • Instagram Stories- Spotify

GoPros integration works by simply choosing a clip in the GoPro app and youll be able to share directly to Instagram stories. In fact, the executive said, people have already used about 2billionminutes of video calling on WhatsApp alone (and Zuckerberg apparently contributes to them, relying on the service to video chat with his young daughters when he's on the road). We plan to expand this feature and gradually roll out M suggestions for translations to people using Messenger in the United States in the coming weeks.

The company didn't give an exact date for the rollout of the new feature, but testing is going on right now. But users said they also want to engage in real-time video sessions in smaller, private groups.

Notably, users will be able to minimize the video and continue video chatting while using Instagram simultaneously.

In addition to these video chats, Instagram is also getting an improved Explore tab, and a new filter to protect users from bullying comments. GoPro's integration actually lets you edit your movies inside Facebook's apps, while you can immediately start listening to songs shared from Spotify and SoundCloud. Explore is still personalized for you, but the content is now organized into topic channels so you can browse across your interests and go deeper on any area you'd like. The goal of the makeover is to connect users with hashtags and content that they will like. A new camera icon will be available on the platform.

What's more, the tool will show a "deep link" to the song so that when someone shares a song, it will play automatically from the Instagram story.

US State Department confirms Trump's plan to visit Britain
The US ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, said the "thick-skinned" president would not be deterred by demonstrations. Queen Elizabeth II may entertain US President Donald Trump at Windsor Castle during his short visit to Britain.

'That means you turn any video into a National Basketball Association dunkcam or add a cloud of hearts and Pomeranians to fluff up your photo, ' Instagram says.

Explore meanwhile has been redesigned to change the way users discover posts, people and experiences in the app.

Instagram will also add AR camera effects that were brought to Facebook a year ago. "It's awesome how many of these tools are about bringing us together". This would archive all your Stories, so you can see what you posted on which day of the month and view them back.

'The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you'll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post'.
