Despite the controversy that envelops Facebook Due to the large number of accounts affected by Cambridge Analytica, the company does not stop updating its flagship application, with the permission of WhatsApp. At the time we already announced that in future updates would come novelties to the social network of photography and finally it has been. Finally we can use the new mode Instagram portrait , in addition to the possibility of labeling other people using stickers.
It was the social network itself through its official blog who announced the arrival of the mode Instagram portrait for the version 39 of the application , that we can already download in the Apple App Store and in Google Play for Android devices.
Yesterday we told you about the Instagramtags , a new function that will allow us to scan a code to follow the profiles of users in the social network of photography and, while we hope that this novelty reaches the official version of the application, we can be satisfied with the new mode Instagram portrait that will delight the users.
We are talking about a new function that will take care of Focus on people who are in the scene , while the background will appear blurred, achieving a surprising effect and that will delight those who love selfies.
To activate the portrait mode of Instagram you just have to open the camera from the application. Now, next to the “superzoom” mode under the recording button, we will see a new mode called “Focus” that will keep us focused at all times while the background fades smoothly getting a very striking aspect where the people who appear in the video or photo are the main protagonists.
In addition, once we have finished the video or made a capture on Instagram, we can use the different filters, stickers and other available tools to give a unique touch to our video or photograph.
On the other hand, the photography social network launches a new feature for users of iOS devices. We talk about the sticker or sticker “@mention” located on the decal tray. We just have to select and search or write a user to mention it as we usually do at the bottom of the photo or video.
This tool is compatible with Instagram Stories And, as expected, we can place the label where we want, in addition to changing the size or rotate the sticker in which we mention another user.
Say that the mode Instagram portrait is now available for iPhone 6S or higher in addition to certain Android terminals. As for the new feature to tag people on Instagram, say that for now it’s only available for iOS devices, so users of the Google operating system should wait a little longer.
