Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom added that there were tensions over the future of Instagram, and he himself painted some of the features even before knowing that it will work out in its favor.

Apart from the confessions made about the Cambridge Analytica, Facebook CEO also revealed that in order to make Instagram a success he copied the popular "Stories" feature of Snapchat.

When you open the camera, you'll see "Focus" between "Boomerang" and "Superzoom" under the record button.

So I can basically use portrait mode on any phone?

Forbes says Yankees most valuable team in Major League Baseball
The Sox are third in runs scored and second in team ERA - and they're winning the close ones, going a ideal 5-0 in one-run games. And no telling what might happen in the series finale Thursday night at Fenway Park . "Hopefully put this to bed".

The Focus mode is only available for select Android smartphones. Now you can simply use Instagram for that objective.

This update is available as part of Instagram version 39.0 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android in Google Play. Initially they refused to do so, but after more discussions, Zuckerberg convinced them and the Instagram Stories features was rolled out in 2016.

The new tool could make easier for Instagram users to migrate over to other photo sharing apps too. And now, this new Portrait Mode with an advanced capturing technology. So for users of the iPhone X, there are now two options for them to try out instead of the inbuilt Portrait mode. Focus on the object by tapping on the screen, the mode will itself turn the background around the object to blurry. Simply tap to take a photo or tap and hold to record a video. Instead of awkwardly spelling out your Instagram handle, letter by letter, pull up your Nametag and let the person scan it with the Instagram Stories camera to follow you.

While its parent company faces a grilling on Capitol Hill, Instagram is rolling out some fun new features to keep users amused.
