Instagram’s new Quiet Mode won’t let notifications disturb you
Instagram recently released a new feature called Quiet Mode, which can be used to temporarily hide all notifications and posts from the app’s feed. This feature may be especially helpful for people, especially teenagers, who need a break from the app. In an official blog post, the company announced the feature, explaining that it will help users “focus their attention” and “establish boundaries” with their friends and followers.
