Instagram adds option to mute notifications
New Delhi: Facebook-owned Instagram is about to give more control to its users by giving them an option to turn off notifications for a specific period of time. WhatsApp, also owned by Facebook has a similar feature of muting notifications.
Called ‘Pause All’, the feature would switch off notifications for anywhere up to eight hours, reported Social Media Today on Wednesday.
It was also reported that this option was introduced almost a month ago for testing purposes.
The feature has been rolled out for iOS and as of now is available as a beta on Android.
For today’s generation, social media has become more of an obsession than just a mode of an outlet. Instagram’s mute feature shall most definitely serve as a boon since it could be used to shut it off for periods which will, in turn, help users to distance themselves from the online world.
