Do you love putting your videos on Instagram? If yes, then the latest update on the application will surely be helpful for you. As per TechCrunch, Instagram is launching the ability for users to post video Notes.
Notes is Instagram’s status feature that launched a year ago. Up until now, you could only post text or emojis to your status update. Now, you can post a two-second looping video Note that will be visible to your mutual followers or Close Friends for 24 hours.
Users can only post content from their front-facing camera when sharing video Notes. Users have to capture the content in the app when posting a video Note, which means that they can’t upload a video from their phone’s camera gallery.
Users can post a video Note by going to their inbox, tapping on their photo in the Notes tray, and then clicking the camera button on top of their photo. From there, they can tap the record button to record a two-second video. Users then can add text to the clip and then post it.
There’s an increase in the number of video content being created on Instagram, with Reels likely contributing to a significant portion lately. Now it is to see how this feature of Video Notes would perform among the users.  Also now, WhatsApp, which is also owned by Meta, has rolled out a feature through which you can pin chats within one-on-one and group conversations.
With pinned messages, users can easily highlight important messages in group or 1:1 chats, read a statement. This feature helps save users time so they can find timely messages more easily.
All message types like text, poll, image, emojis, and more can be pinned, and they are end-to-end encrypted.
To ‘pin’ a message, users can long press on the message, and select ‘pin’ from the context menu. A banner will appear to select the duration of the pinned message – 24 hours, 7 days, and 30 days. Seven Days is the default choice. In a group chat, admins have the option to select if all members or only admins can pin a message.
Last week, WhatsApp rolled out the ability to send disappearing voice messages that could only be viewed once by the receiver.
