Instagram to add new features to one moderator and the option to like Stories

Reverse engineering expert, Alessandro Paluzzi has found that Instagram is testing three new features: add moderator, like Stories, and more. Recently, the popular social media platform announced that it is testing a new “Take a Break” feature which will send users reminders to take a break after their set  duration has passed. 

To compete with TikTok and YouTube, Instagram has been introducing several new changes. It replaced the exclusive ‘swipe-up’ links with new Sticker links for everyone. And the platform added new susbcriptions and badges which will not only allow users to become patrons of their favorites creators and influencers on the app but will also become a source of income for the creators community. 


New capabilities expected to launch on Instagram 

As discovered by @Paluzzi, Instagram is working on allowing users to add one moderator to a live video. The moderator will be able to manage live sessions by turning off comments, requests to go live, questions, copy links, and sharing sessions. 

The second feature he has found is the ability to like Stories. As per the shared screenshots, users’ followers will be able to leave ‘like hearts’ on their Stories which will be visible to the followers and the account holder. Currently, followers send comments and reaction emojis to Stories.

Previously, it was reported that the app is developing new “Favorites” feature for iOS that will allow them to add the accounts they will like to see on their Timeline in their “Favorites” list.
