Instagram is testing integrating Facebook Messenger Rooms & bringing other new features


The Facebook-owned giant photo and video sharing platform has recently begun testing uploading your Livestreams to IGTV and account memorialization. Some of the features being tested don’t become available to the public.

Here is the taste of new features that will be coming soon to the social network as seen by developer Alessandro Paluzzi. Instagram is testing integrating Messenger Rooms. The video chat feature was Facebook’s alternative to Zoom. Facebook is also working on integrating Messenger Rooms to WhatsApp.


Instagram is also testing paginating Stories. The Stories tab will now feature one or two rows.

The Photo and Video sharing platform is working on pre-live titles. This feature will allow people who want to go live a textual preview so your audience knows the context of your Live and what’s expected.

The feature will come in handy as live streaming on the app has seen a meteoric rise in the past few months with over 800 million users engaging on it daily. Livestream will soon be shareable via links too.

Aslo, you’ll be able to go live on both Facebook and Instagram.

The App will soon let users forward DMs. Just like WhatsApp, there will also be a limit on the number of people you can forward the messages to. This is to curb the spread of misinformation on the platform. With this feature too, you’ll soon be able to know if your message has been forwarded or seen.

Business accounts will also be able to have the insights button right on their profile page for easy and quick access. Close Friends is also getting a revamp. Instagram will show you the avatars of people you’ve had the most interactions with.
