Instagram To Let Users Download All Their Photos, Videos, Messages

  • Focus: Instagram's New Camera Format In Stories

"You'll soon be able to download a copy of what you've shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos and messages", the spokesperson said.

This is being done so as to make your Instagram data portable, just like Facebook has done with its "Download Your Information" tool. This feature which is available in Instagram Stories blurs the background while focusing on the object to create a depth of field effect. The same feature is available on Facebook which lets users download all the shared photographs and everything from their profile and now the same feature is going to be available on Instagram.

Photo-sharing app Instagram has launched a new feature on its platform that enables users to take professional shots.

Of course, Instagram has far more serious reasons to incorporate this feature as soon as possible than simple customer convenience. No problem; the tool will let you pick a color gradient background, a pattern or a selfie spruced up with AR filters.

The social networking giant is now under scrutiny over Cambridge Analytica data misuse scandal.

He slotted the ball into the corner, to earn Madrid a third successive semi-final ticket in the UEFA championship. Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney recently argued his bicycle was better than Ronaldo's version.


If the recent data privacy debacle involving Facebook and Cambridge Analytica has you anxious, you wouldn't be alone - the United States' Congress has similar concerns. The different modes and filters available on Instagram has made the entire process of photo-sharing an unbelievable experience.

Instagram has been insulated to the revenue drive of platforms like its parent company, Facebook, and WhatsApp, another sibling subsidiary.

It serves as a fresh reminder that these services - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like - they aren't free.

Although data portability seems like a really nice feature which supports public's privacy and their data protection, it might not do the same for Instagram itself. What are your thoughts on Instagram's upcoming data portability tool?
