Instagram introduces ability to mute accounts

7 monthes ago   |   By GSMArena

Instagram has introduced a new feature dubbed Mute. As the name suggests, the functionality allows you to mute accounts, or in other words hide their posts without unfollowing them.
The feature can be accessed by heading to the Options menu in the corner of a post. You'll have options to mute posts, or mute both posts and stories from the account.
You can also mute posts and stories by pressing and holding on a story in your tray, or from a profile.
The Mute feature will be rolling out to users over the coming weeks.
