Since its inception in 2010, the American photo and video sharing social networking service, Instagram, has been expanding its platform with fascinating features to stand out among its competitors.

Instagram Reels is one of the platform’s most popular and intriguing features. The feature was first launched in 2020, and since then, the firm has been adding more delighted particles to improve the user experience.

Back in April, this year, we reported that the social networking service rolls out 90-second long Reels similar to the TikTok feature of 3 minutes. Although, when the Reels were launched, the videos were just 15 seconds long. However, this is commendable for upgrading to 90 seconds long.

Maintaining these standards, the social networking service is reportedly working on a new feature for its platform. According to a tweet from the popular reliable leaker, @alex193a Instagram is working on a shortcut to quickly reach the messaging settings from the direct section.

The new feature, according to the leak, will help Instagram users quickly access the messaging settings from the direct section. Although, the leaker reveals that the feature is available for creator and business accounts only.

Currently, users may not be able to access this feature, as it is still under development, though, the leaker was able to share some images of the new features in his tweet, while it was being tested by the developer. This implies that the new features will soon be released, although the social networking service has not fixed any official launch date yet.

In a similar vein, recall that last month the platform announced working several new features among them is Quote request, NFT, immerse experience in the home feed, to tackle main business issues and help users support their favorite brands.

Therefore, it is never an overstatement to state that the platform is committed to ensuring users’ convenience through the introduction of friendly features and this has made the platform stand unique among other social media platforms.
