  • Facebook Announces a Dating App, Group Video Chats in Instagram and Whatsapp, And More

It was through a tweet by Jane Manchun Wong, the photos sharing application is testing it's latest feature where the user can react to the stories of other users.

The next new feature is Video Chat. You can trim a video to show only the part you want to share - Stories are supposed to be short snippets and not full movies, after all - within the app, as well.

The firm is now testing out the new video chat feature, with plans to roll it out around the world soon. This will give friends a new way to interact with each other in Instagram. This can be initiated by tapping the video icon at the top corner of any Direct Message thread whether its with another individual or “a small group”.

'You can chat one-on-one or with a small group - and you can keep the conversation going for as long as you like, ' Instagram says. It's even going to be possible to minimize the video and continue the chat even as they browse Instagram or upload new stuff to their feed and story.

Facebook announced at its annual F8 developer conference on Tuesday a new feature that lets you share content from third-party apps onto your 24-hour videos.

Whatsapp is also getting group video calls.

People already share their interests on our platforms, and now we're making that experience faster, easier and more creative on Stories.

The firm is also rolling out new interactive camera effects, and has overhauled its Explore tab to organize content into 'topic channels'.

'From there you can edit and add to your story or send it via Direct. The goal of the makeover is to connect users with hashtags and content that they will like.

Finally, Instagram is adding a Camera Effects Platform.

For example, Instagrammers will be able to try out Kylie Jenner's favorite lipstick colors in their selfies; add a cloud of hearts and Pomeranians from Jiffpom; or turn any video into an NBA "DunkCam" moment.

Instagram is also apparently looking at adding a slow-mo recording feature to Stories. This is the page that is personalized for every user to discover new people and accounts to follow.

In September of past year, Instagram said it had 800 million monthly users. There, you'll see an option to share what you're listening to. But now, the executive said, "one of the things that I'm most proud of is that we've built the largest fully encrypted communication network in the world".
