Advertisements are a common occurrence, so it probably shouldn’t be a surprise when companies find ways to add them into the experience.
Instagram has added support for wide color to its iOS client on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Besides showing the vibrancy of the wide color photos taken from the new iPhones, the app will also show wide color photos from other users in all their glory.
While sharing photos and videos is the primary focus for Instagram, adding comments to that content is another high-value area for the company as well.
Back in August of this year, Instagram unveiled its new feature “Stories,” which works like Snapchat in that timed-message delivery kind of way.
Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom has confirmed that the company plans on bringing live videos to its platform. Instagram initially started as a photo-sharing website that allowed users to customise their photos through various filters. Since then, the company has expanded its platform to add support for video.
Instagram, one of the more popular social networks available on mobile devices, has added a few new features to its Stories function.
