Instagram to Test an In-App Feature That Will Alert Users When There Are Service Interruptions

Last Updated on October 28, 2021 by Josh

Instagram is testing a new feature that will notify users when the platform is experiencing an outage or technical issue. The notification will appear directly in users’ activity feeds. Instagram notes that it won’t send a notification every time there is an outage. Still, if it sees that users “are confused and looking for answers,” it will determine if a notification would make things clearer.

Key takeaways:

  • The news comes as Facebook and its properties have been experiencing a lengthy outage.
  • It would eliminate the need for users to worry if the app isn’t launching due to a problem on their end.
  • For the next three months, Instagram will be testing a new feature in the United States.
