Instagram is experimenting with another new feature that will allow users to post disappearing content. A feature called Notes allows users to post quick notes, such as announcements, to their Close Friends circle or to followers who also follow them. Unlike Twitter’s new Notes feature, which allows authors to post long contentthe Instagram version is more like stickers that disappear after 24 hours.

This feature was first noticed by a marketer Ahmed Ghanem, who posted screenshots on Twitter that suggest Instagram notes will appear on the app’s direct messaging screen in a new line above the posts themselves. From here, you can hit the plus button to leave a new note for others to view.

The Notes section is likely to appear in the Direct Messages section.

We understand that notes can be up to 60 characters long. Based on the screenshots, users will not receive notifications about Notes, but will be able to see them for 24 hours in the app, as well as reply to Notes via messages.

This feature can help highlight important messages from friends they don’t want to lose in their inbox, and can provide more visibility than posting to Stories. Instagram tests will work to determine how users respond to the feature and whether it makes sense to implement it more widely.

Instagram has confirmed that it is currently testing the Notes feature with a limited set of users.

“We are always working to help you connect better on Instagram. We’re testing Notes right now so people can quickly share their thoughts with their friends, with a small group of people as stars,” a Meta spokesperson said.

The test follows a busy month for Instagram and its feature releases.

Earlier today, the company launched a series age verification tools. Last week he expanded his nudges for teens to help them stop looking at negative content and presented TikTok style fullscreen channel. It was released earlier this month pinned messages as well as sensitive content controls.
