instagram video calls explore redesign

Users can see a list of new features on Instagram, with video calling and a new Explore page scoring the highest points. The updated redesign will mean that users will be able to browse more content related to their interests.

The Explore page

The redesigned Explore page has new features like circular buttons on the top of the page with various options on subjects like animals, photography, and architecture and more. This way, users can see more posts about that particular topic on their mobile phones. Previously, it was a page where there were posts that the users may like. Now, it’s all in the hands of the user and he can select whatever he wishes to browse through.

Call Away

Apart from the redesigned Explore page, Instagram is also adding video chat for users. You simply need to tap the new camera icon at the top of a direct messaging thread with the person you wish to start a video chat with and the call will go through. The feature also allows the users to chat with one person or a small group. Currently, the feature is still in testing and will be accessible worldwide soon.
