Rumours are flying that Instagram has been working hard on some new updates and integrations!
As a platform, we all know and love, it is always exciting to know you will be able to get more from the app and enjoy better interactions and engagements with your friends and followers.

Though most articles report Instagram as having nothing to share at this point, we are too excited to wait and have gathered a list of the top 3 new possible updates from the app for you to check out:

1. GoPro & Spotify integrations:

From what we can find, it looks like you will now be able to share straight from your Spotify or GoPro app directly to your Instagram story!
We’ve often seen people sharing what they are listening too via a screenshot uploaded to a story so it seems Instagram has bridged the gap and taken out the extra effort with the direct to story integration.

For avid GoPro users, this is the perfect way for users to be more active and share more with their fans than ever before!

These updates come at the same time as potential story reactions and slow-motion recording options.

 

2. Calling

The possibility of calling via Instagram became apparent to the apps massive audience base a few months ago via leaked code and now those possibilities are all but confirmed as we move closer and closer to seeing the creation of an all-in-one app for Instagram users.

 

3. A Mute Button for Profiles

Do you get annoyed by seeing too much of certain accounts but don’t quite want to unfollow them completely?
It’s looking like you will soon be able to mute accounts to create a more customised Instagram feed with more fo the content you love without sacrificing your follower/following volume.
