The photo- and video-sharing platform –Instagram introduces ‘Your Activity feature that tracks how much time users spend on the app. In the latest development, Instagram is tweaking the ‘daily time limit’ options. Currently, Users are able to select a time limit as low as 10 minutes per day on the app. The latest update brings that minimum to 30 minutes. Changes to daily time limit settings come a few days after Instagram released its ‘Take a Break’ feature. The Company designs this feature to help users to take intervals between spending time on the app.
Instagram is tweaking the ‘daily time limit’ feature
Instagram is making the change to avoid sending people multiple notifications at the same time. Meta spokesperson releases the statement:
“We have two time management features. Our existing ‘daily limit’ shows you a notification when you have hit your daily limit, but our newest feature ‘Take A Break’ shows you full-screen reminders to leave the app, and includes 10-minute intervals”
The daily time limit setting pops up a notification to the user once their app activity hits their preferred limit, reminding them to be conscious of how much time they are spending on the app. The daily time limit options now available on Instagram are 30 minutes, 45 minutes, one hour, two hours, and three hours. Earlier, users were allowed to choose 10 minutes and 15 minutes as time limit options for restricting their daily access to the app.
According to the report, the social media platform is alerting users with popups that appear on top of their feeds following the new app update, asking them to update the daily time limit option.
Though the popup says the user can keep their existing limit if they want, clicking the edit button directs them to select a preset option, the lowest of which is 30 minutes. An additional popup on the activity page in the app says the 10-minute value is “no longer supported.”
