the Goal, the American company that runs Instagram, has talked to its users about the new functionality of its platform. It is the silent mode, also called “quiet mode”, whose main purpose is to help in time management and in the concentration of those who use its gadget.
This way, users will be able to perform other activities without invoking the application, notifying of any new message. When the function is turned on, the person will not receive any kind of notification from the platform. It is a great choice for professionals and students who need silence.
In addition, for users who have sent a message, they should automatically receive a notification that the person will not receive an acknowledgment of receipt, that is, your notification. So, just activate silent mode in Instagram to be able to study, drive, or any other activity that requires fewer distractions.
After activating the function, the user’s status will be changed, letting his friends know that he cannot be contacted at the moment. The function will also allow to define tables. In this way, it will be possible to choose a specific period of the day to avoid distractions and focus efficiently on your activity.
However, after deactivating the silent mode, the user of the app should receive a notification from Instagram containing a summary of all the missed activities. According to Meta, younger users and students can also activate the tool late at night.
Users who wish to send a message to someone in silent mode will automatically receive a notification from Instagram informing them that the recipient of the message is using the new functionality and will not be able to respond to the request. In this way, silent mode helps avoid distractions.
As of now, silent mode for Instagram is available in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. According to Meta, the functionality is expected to be available in other countries soon, including Brazil. Users are waiting in anticipation.
