OREANDA-NEWS. The social network Instagram will inform American users about technical failures directly in the application, the company's press service reported. It is noted that after several years of testing, a decision will be made whether to extend the function to a wider audience.

«We are testing a new feature that will notify you in the activity feed when we have a failure or technical problems, as well as when they are fixed», the message says. At the same time, it is noted that notifications will be sent in case of large-scale problems in the work of the social network, which are noticeable to a large number of users. Testing the new feature will take about a few months.

The company also told about it's intention to introduce warnings about violations of existing Instagram rules after the publication of content. To do this, a new tab «account status» will be created.

Earlier, Instagram announced the rejection of the IGTV service, which allowed publishing long videos. At the same time, the social network has increased the duration of videos uploaded to the main feed to an hour. Previously, it was less than a minute. Now the IGTV section will be renamed Instagram TV. It will be intended primarily for users who log into Instagram to watch videos.
