Meta has finally introduced the Quiet mode on Instagram, which is basically a Do Not Disturb setting specifically for the app. It turns off notifications and sends an auto-reply to people trying to DM you.
According to Instagram head Adam Mosseri, these features are introduced to help people, especially teens, manage their time and what they see on Instagram. Also, these features will help you shape your Instagram into an enjoyable experience.
The Quiet Mode will reside under the Notification settings and you can choose the period you want to stay in the mode. Once enabled, your activity status will change to ‘In quiet mode,‘ And once you are set to get back to the world of Reels and Stories, you will get to see the summary of the notifications so that you can finally have a look at them.
In a blog post sighted by TheGhanaTech.com, Instagram says that it will prompt teens to enable Quiet mode when they spend a specific amount of time on Instagram late at night. This feature can help focus on other things rather than surfing Instagram for long durations.
Instagram’s Quiet Mode is rolling out the users in the US, United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and should reach more countries soon.
