Instagram is planning on adding 'Usage insights' in its app as tech industry focuses on digital health

It seems like most of the technology companies are pushing towards digital health or well being in their own ways. The primary way they think they can help the users are by informing them about how much time the user spends on any particular app, service or even a device. Google was the first to introduce this new initiative at Google I/O 2018 a couple of weeks back and later Apple showcased something similar at WWDC 2018. It looks like Instagram is the latest service that is planning to move towards time management control informing its users about how much time they have spent on the app.

According to a report by TechCrunch, the internal code of the Instagram app for Android revealed that the company is working on introducing a new section in the app with the name “Usage Insights” where users can check the amount of time they sent on their app. It is unclear about how the division of the time will work in the app or how comprehensive the breakdown will be. One thing that the report noted is that it is unlikely if Instagram will actually reveal all the time that a user has spent on the platform.

This is not the only change or new feature that Instagram is working on right now. According to the report, the company is also working on “a new commenting interface” where users will see a row of quick-add emojis and the ‘@’ button for tagging friends quickly.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom took to Twitter to confirm the company’s plans about introducing “Usage Insights” feature. He simply added “It’s true.” while retweeting the original report. In the second tweet, he went on to add that the company is working on “building tools that will help apthe IG community” to be more aware of how much time they spend on Instagram.
