Recently, tipster Alessandro Paluzzi hinted that users who host a live broadcast on Instagram will soon have an option to set a moderator for the session. This moderator will have the ability to manage comments during the live session.

For the unversed, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri has announced that the Meta-owned photo-sharing platform is testing a new feature for its users called “Take a Break”. This opt-in feature will allow users to get a reminder to take a break from scrolling. This feature can really help people with Instagram addiction. According to Mosseri, users will be able to set the reminder after specific time intervals: 10, 20 or 30 minutes.
