  • Facebook and Instagram Stories adds Spotify integration

It seems like every week, Instagram adds a new feature to its app.

'The order of photos and videos in your feed will be based on the likelihood you'll be interested in the content, your relationship with the person posting and the timeliness of the post'. Well, you may want to share the song you are playing in Spotify to Instagram or a picture from your GoPro. Some phones have a slow-motion video mode integrated into the camera already, but Instagram may bring the ability to all phones - or at least those with compatible software.

Facebook announced at its annual F8 developer conference on Tuesday a new feature that lets you share content from third-party apps onto your 24-hour videos. A recent API update is allowing other apps to share directly to Instagram Stories, similar to the tool that allowed other apps to post to the Instagram timeline.

The new sharing tools are available for Android apps today and will be coming to iOS soon. Building on that success, the new Explore design is adding topic channels to uncover content on your personal interests and tastes as well as offer more control over content.




In 2012, Facebook announced Open Graph, a feature that automatically posted songs you're listening to, stories you're reading and other activity, directly to your Facebook feed. Video calls can be minimized, too, so you can keep browsing Instagram or chatting with others while in the video call. Soon, you'll be able to call someone within your DMs and talk to them over a video call.

WhatsApp first brought video calling to WhatsApp back in 2016. The AR effects from them will roll out in the coming weeks, and Instagram expects to announce other partners soon.

'That means you turn any video into a National Basketball Association dunkcam or add a cloud of hearts and Pomeranians to fluff up your photo, ' Instagram says. Here's a quick rundown of these features and more. Developers will be able to build experiences that let people virtually customize or try on merchandise, walk through new products, or simply express themselves in a fun way.

The new Explore will be rolling out over the coming weeks. You can also watch all F8 keynotes on the Facebook for Developers Page.
