Instagram May Bring Facebook-Like Reactions On Its Platform

The feature is already in the testing phase.

There is no stopping to the photo and video-sharing app. Instagram is adding some or the other feature on a daily basis. Yesterday, I informed you about the “remove follower” feature, which let the user with public view account setting to remove the followers silently. Other Instagram features that have lately hit the platform are story design tools, music inclusion in the Stories, IGTV, and a few more.

According to a new media report, the Facebook-owned company is testing a new feature which will let the users react to Stories in Instagram. The feature is quite similar to what we have seen on the Facebook where the user can add their reaction to the comment section. 

Though the feature is yet in the testing phase. Instagram will roll out the new feature only after extensive testing and feedback from the users. If you are the lucky one, you might have got hold of the new feature as Instagram is already on the testing spree in various countries.

As reported by Phone Arena, the latest stable Instagram version (54.0.0.14.82) is added with six available reactions that can be used in Stories: applause, laugh, heart eyes, face with open mouth, crying, and fire. These features are not available to everyone as they're enabled via a server-side update.

Interestingly, a Tweet dating back to the month of April first revealed the reaction feature in the Instagram Stories. However, it isn’t sure if the feature is available on iOS and Android both. Many Instagram users did inform that the feature was accessible throughout their country.

The new reactions look a bit different from what the above tweeter user had posted. Instagram might have refined the feature to make it more interesting. Also, the reaction feature has now a separate space for it on the bottom left.

By integrating Facebook’s features on Instagram, the company may be trying to bridge the gap between these two social giants. Furthermore, the common users of both these platforms can easily relate between both the apps.
