Furthermore, there has been no official announcement from Instagram on the latest discovery and by the time it happens, this piece of information is under the development stage.

Paluzzi has stated, “At the moment there are only a few small references in the code about this, nothing visible so, until I post a screenshot that can confirm my assumption, consider it a mere rumor."

Earlier, in January, Instagram announced a new feature called Quiet mode, which aimed to help users to encourage them for fixing boundaries with friends and followers. The new feature was designed to reduce the anxiety of users and enable them to spend time away from the app by making the incoming notifications ‘mute’ and auto-replying to direct messages (DMs) when the feature is switched on.

In an official blog, Instagram mentioned: “Teens have told us that they sometimes want to take time for themselves and might be looking for more ways to focus at night, while studying and during school. You can easily customize your Quiet mode hours to fit your schedule and once the feature is turned off, we’ll show you a quick summary of notifications so you can catch up on what you missed."
