It would be safe to say that watching and sharing Reels on Instagram has solidified itself as a crucial component of our daily lives, and let’s face it, it also takes up a significant amount of our time. The Meta-owned social networking platform now offers the Quiet mode to aid in maintaining our concentrate and keeping our minds off of Instagram. This is all about what you see here.
The Quiet Mode on Instagram is now available
Instagram’s new Quiet Mode will disable notifications so you can continue to concentrate on your work or academic activities. The target demographic for this is teens, and Instagram will nudge them to activate the mode once their usage increases.
The Quiet Mode will be located in the Notification settings, and you may specify how long you wish to stay in the mode. Your activity status will change to ‘In silent mode’ once activated. And whenever you’re ready to return to the world of Reels and Stories, you’ll see a summary of the notifications so you may finally look at them.
The tool is in addition to the other features Instagram has used in the past to reduce usage. This includes the Take a Break feature, which reminds individuals (particularly teenagers) to take a break, as well as the ability to set time restrictions and track how much time is spent on the app.
Instagram’s Quiet Mode is now available to users in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, with more countries to follow.
In addition, the social media app now allows you to label several posts in Explore as ‘Not Interested,’ so you see less of what you don’t like. Furthermore, you will be able to exclude certain recommendations by giving a list of terms or hashtags that you do not want to see on a post. This is accessed through the Hidden Words section of the Privacy settings.
Instagram’s Family Center and supervision tools now allow parents to see who their children have banned.
