Instagram launches a portrait mode and a new way to tag friends in Stories
Instagram added a couple of new features today, and the biggest news is a portrait mode feature called Focus. The app also has a new way of mentioning other users in stories with a sticker.
Focus mode is basically Instagram’s take on the portrait mode that’s been popping up in every new smartphone. The company says Focus will be found under the record button next to the superzoom setting. “As soon as there’s someone in the shot, you’ll notice the person stays in focus while the background softly blurs,” Instagram said in the statement. “Simply tap to take a photo or tap and hold to record a video.”
