Instagram Will Soon Be Able To Tag Friends In Video
Way back in 2013, Instagram introduced the photo-tagging feature, and now the Facebook-owned social media platform is thought to be testing the exact same functionality in video posts as well.Â According to a post by TechCrunch, which says it has confirmed the info with the social media company, the video-tagging feature will work similarly to the existing one for photos, but with an important difference.
Instagram didnâ€™t disclose much info about the upcoming feature, but said that it is only testing the feature with a â€œsmall percentageâ€ of users for now. Thereâ€™s no word on when the Facebook-Owned company plans on expanding the test to a wider user base, and certainly no info about when it expects to roll out the feature to all users globally.
Test Only Available On Mobile Apps
Itâ€™s worth noting here that the feature is only being tested on Instagram mobile apps for now, and is unavailable on the web client. Thereâ€™s no explanation on whether the company plans to introduce the feature on the website at some stage, of if it will remain app-exclusive in the foreseeable future.
