Instagram has launched a ‘quiet mode’ feature to turn off notifications and send an auto-reply. The profile status will also change when the feature is enabled. It is currently available in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and is expected to launch in more countries soon. Users can enable this feature by going to the Instagram settings tab, clicking on notifications, choosing to pause all and enabling quiet mode. They will be able to opt for the duration they want to pause the notification. In addition, the platform also lets users control their recommendations by selecting ‘not interested’ on a post seen in explore tab. They can add words, emojis, and hashtags that they may want to avoid in feeds.
