Audio Notes and Selfie Video Notes

"Audio Notes" and "Selfie Video Notes" are set to be a hit among the younger generation. Notes have become a preferred method of communication for teenagers, and Instagram is taking it a step further with these new additions. "Audio Notes" will let you leave voice recordings as notes, making it easier to share thoughts and messages in a more personal and expressive way. "Selfie Video Notes" will allow users to capture short videos that loop in their notes for 24 hours, adding a dynamic element to their updates.
