Instagram is rolling out a new feature that lets users know how much time they spend on its platform.
Earlier this year, Facebook and Instagram announced that they would be launching activity dashboards for a new feature called “Your Activity” which lets users know how much time they spend on Instagram.
The new “Your Activity” dashboard doesn’t just offer information about how much time a user has spent in the app over the last seven days. It also allows users to manage their time on the platform by setting daily reminders to let them know when they’ve reached the time they set for themselves.
It also allows users to mute push notifications or turn them on or off for specific periods of time, as well as turn vibration for notifications on or off at will.
The feature comes at a time when the time well-spent movement is gaining significant influence, and other tech companies like Google and Apple are also introducing similar features. Apple recently introduced Screen Time on iOS and Google introduced Digital Wellness dashboard with Android 9.0.
Facebook’s equivalent – “Your time on Facebook” – is not being rolled out yet, despite being announced at the same time in August.
