Instagram adds Notes, Group Profiles, Candid Stories and other sharing features

Instagram has added several new features that allow you to share your thoughts and memories with your friends and family, including a new ‘Candid Stories’ option similar to the BeReal social media app. According to a recent blog post from the company, some of these new features let you share your ideas with others and even collections. Here’s a quick look at what Instagram has to offer.

Candid stories

Similar to BeReal, the developers have also added a ‘Candid Stories’ feature that allows you and your friends to record and share what you do in the form of a story. Users can capture candids using their story camera or from the multi-author story at the top of the feed or choose to receive a daily reminder that starts after your first candid.

If you don’t want daily candid story notifications, you can disable them from the app settings. It also seems that Meta is developing a similar feature for Facebook Stories.

Notes

A new feature lets you share notes with friends and see what they’re up to. With a maximum length of up to 60 characters, you can share your thoughts with others through a combination of text and emojis. If you want to leave a note for someone, look at the top of their inbox, select the people you follow or on your ‘close friends’ list and the note will appear at the top of their inbox for 24 hours, just like stories. The reply to a note will be visible in your direct messages.

Group Profiles

Group Profile is a new feature that allows you to share posts and stories in a special shared profile with your friends on Instagram. When you share a post to a group profile, only the group members can see what you’ve shared. Also, the messages you share are not visible on your profile. To access the new feature, tap the Plus icon and you’ll see an option called “Group Profiles.”

Joint collections

Instagram has also rolled out a new feature that lets you share saved posts with others in a group or private conversations. If you want to save a post to a Collaborative Collection, just save it from the feed or DM it to your friend and save it from there.
