Instagram Brings New Focus Mode to Stories, Mention Stickers on iOS

Now an Instagram spokesperson tells me "We are building a new data portability tool". The Focus mode on Instagram allows users to take portrait style photos with a bokeh effect.

The Focus mode is only available for select Android smartphones.

The Focus camera feature will appear as a user opens the app's camera.

This might be hard to believe, but you're about to take even more selfies than you already do.

With this new Focus Mode selected, all you have to do is point the camera at someone's face and the background will blur automatically.

You can download the latest version of Instagram via the App Store or Play Store.

Since the feature is designed from the advanced technology on the camera side, it is now available for limited smartphones and not for all the smartphone users. Moving away from the new camera mode, Stories' users will now also have access to a new user mention sticker. You can either use the selfie camera or the rear camera if you are taking a portrait photo of a friend or a thing.

As TechCrunch reports, there is no word yet on when the new tool will be available.

That's because Instagram is gearing up to launch a feature called Nametags, which works like Snapchat Snapcodes, according to TechCrunch. The app took to its own Press website to make the official announcement for the launch of this feature which was hidden in previous builds too on Android devices. The company says Focus will be found under the record button next to the superzoom setting. There you can see the "Focus" option just after Boomerang.

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.
