Take A Break Instagram’s New Feature: Check Details

Instagram’s New Feature: Are you a social media addict? Well, you are not the only one. We often ignore other things and focus only on social media platforms. You need periodic breaks, which you don’t take. Instagram has now come up with a new feature:’ Take A Break’ in several countries. 

About The Take a Break Feature:

Instagram has designed the Take A Break with the aim that it will remind the users that they need to take breaks. To ensure that young people utilize this feature, Instagram will suggest setting reminders. Additionally, they’ll send notifications to turn on the reminders.

The meta-owned platform took this step to create awareness. “The well-being of young people is important to us. We are focused on ensuring that the time spent on Instagram is intentional and people feel good about it”, stated Natasha Jog. She is the Public Policy Manager of Instagram India.

Countries 

The feature was first launched in the UK, the US, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and now it is available globally, including in India.

Campaign In India

This feature will be campaigned and promoted in India in partnership with ‘We The Young.’ The campaign will last for almost one month. It will showcase situations where people can use this feature. 

If you use Instagram on an iOS device, you may have already received a notification to try this feature. Currently, the quality is only available on the iOS platform. But, if you are an Android user, you can also use it in the upcoming days.

There’s been a lot of conversation over the past few years about “social media addiction.” It’s easy to spend hours on apps like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, just scrolling down an endless feed of photos.

That’s why Instagram’s introduced two features to help social media addiction: “Take a Break” and “Daily Limit.” Both features encourage users to stop using the app after a set amount of time and break the scrolling cycle.

The Take a Break feature is only available on iPhone, but you can set up your Daily Limit on both iPhone and Android. Here’s how to set it up.

How to set a daily Instagram limit

The Daily Limit feature will remind you to close Instagram once you’ve used it too much in a single day.

1. Open Instagram and tap your profile picture in the bottom-right corner.

2. Tap the three stacked lines at the top-right corner of the page, then tap Your Activity.

3. In the Time tab, under Manage Your Time, tap Set daily time limit (iPhone) or Set Daily Reminder (Android).

4. Choose how long you want your daily time limit to be. On an iPhone, you’ll be able to choose 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, or 3 hours. On an Android, you can pick any amount of time up to 23 hours and five minutes.

5. Tap Done (iPhone) or Set Reminder (Android).

Once you hit your time limit, a pop-up will appear telling you.

If you keep the app open for that long without any breaks, your reminder will pop up.
