Instagram, one of the most popular photos and videos sharing applications of all time, keeps experimenting with new features. Recently, the Meta-owned social media platform provided limited access to its Notes feature to some of the users on the platform. In a recent update, Instagram lead Adam Mosseri said that the feature is now available for the masses. This change will seriously impact Japan and European regions where the feature was not in play until today.
In the video shared by Mosseri, he said that the Notes feature was not introduced in Japan and Europe as the company required a decent amount of time to comply with multiple local regulations. As of now, after following all the regulations, Instagram has finally released the feature on a worldwide basis.
For people who need to be made aware of the same, Instagram Notes allows users to share their opinions and thoughts and see what others have in store by posting short messages on the platform that can be seen at the top of the inbox section. Notes are short posts of around 60 characters that use text and emojis. They appear on the top of the inbox and stay for 24 hours. The replies to notes will be available in the DM of the uploader’s inbox.
