Instagram launches video calls and other features in stories and exploration

More than 100 million users watch or interact with live streaming on Instagram, and today the social network has enabled the feature of private group video calls in messages and conversations.

Over the next few weeks, you'll notice that the camera icon appears at the top right of the conversation with messages, be it an individual conversation with a friend or group with several friends, by clicking on it, a video call starts with a group showing who they are currently connected to.

You can control the conversation window by minimizing it and continue to browse and interact with the rest of Instagram's publications such as admiration and comment, while continuing to chat and ongoing video calls.

Another new feature coming to Instagram relates to stories, now you can share content from other apps to Instagram stories, starting with Spotify for songs and GoPro for photography and more apps will be added soon.

Simply through the application that supports the service click on the post button to post on Instagram stories and then a new story will be created that you can edit as you like and as with regular stories, and then publish them.

While watching the story from another app, you'll notice a phrase that shows that the story came from a particular application with the ability to click on it and enter the app and the same content under the user name in the story.

As for the Exploration section, its design has been modified to show content in the form of channels for subjects, you can access any channel and explore related content, for example, there is a channel for subjects of photography, decoration or animals, rather than putting all the pictures and videos mixed together. This new exploration design will be made available to users in the coming weeks.

Finally, Instagram has opened the way for developers to create their conferences and their filters and make them available through the application. If you see any effect an account has used in its story, you'll find a Try it on option by clicking on it, and you can try it on yourself too.
