What if we told you, you might be able to focus while having Instagram? Yes, you heard that right! Instagram recently dropped a new Quiet Mode feature that aims to give users the tools to be more productive in their everyday life.
In this guide, we'll break down how to use the new Quiet Mode feature and how you can access and take your focus back.
Quiet Mode is a new feature that will automatically update your Instagram activity status, mute your notifications, and create an auto reply to your DMs. This feature is very similar to your iPhone's 'Do Not Disturb' feature. Unlike Do Not Disturb, Quiet Mode for Instagram mutes one of the main distractions in your everyday life - social media!
The goal of Quiet Mode according to Meta's statement is, "to help people focus and to encourage people to set boundaries with their friends and followers."
This tool will not only lead to more productivity, but will help social media managers and creators to embrace taking a break from being online.
Instagram Quiet Mode is available to users US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, but is hoping to release the feature globally in the near future.
Step 1: Head to your Instagram account setting and tap 'notifications'
Step 2: Tap 'Quiet Mode' to turn on the new feature
Step 3: Choose how long you want to be in quiet mode, the feature can be used for up to 12 hours. Your auto-reply message will say 'In Quiet Mode'
If you don't have access to quiet mode you can pause all notifications in the mean time.
We hope learning more about this new feature will empower more users to take a break from social media.
