Instagram announces the ability to turn off the camera in live streams

Instagram is introducing a new feature where people can turn off images in live streams whenever they want, so that they can only communicate and broadcast audio. Thus, users can continue live broadcasts with sound.

Instagram introduces a new feature that allows live streaming users to turn off their images. In addition, it also includes an option to momentarily turn off and on the sound in conversations. Although it does not correspond exactly, it is said that Instagram is especially inspired by Clubhouse in this regard.

Facebook continues to copy features from competing apps for its owned platforms. This situation, which we have encountered frequently in the past, seems to be valid for both Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp in the upcoming period.

Instagram takes a new step in user blocking

Instagram is developing its blocking options with the new feature it is testing in the beta phase. The feature, which is expected to be implemented soon, allows the restriction to continue even if the blocked people open new accounts.

Instagram has been taking various measures against hate speech for a long time. In fact, it was stated a short time ago that such an arrangement will be made for the DM department. Now, the accounts of users who constantly disturb people and continue hate speech are blocked from the DM section.

Instagram, who shared a blog post on the subject, also makes the following statement:

It may also be the case that new accounts are disabled to circumvent messaging restrictions. Moreover, accounts that focus entirely on hate speech will be determined by this method.

Now, it is testing a new system that will block new accounts from people who are blocked for any reason in the future. In this way, even if the blocked people open new accounts, nothing changes.

New decisions specific to hate speech come to Instagram DM section

Instagram is making its policy against hate speech tighter. With the latest announcement, the profiles of people who constantly continue hate speech in the DM section will be closed.

Offering new solutions to make messaging easier and fun, Instagram also makes arrangements for hate speech.

According to new statements, certain restrictions will be imposed on the accounts of people who constantly send messages containing hate speech. In other words, accounts will be suspended for a certain period of time.

Tested with a much more complex system than comments
While explaining the subject with a blog post, Instagram particularly points out that the messages containing hate speech cannot actually be detected with a simple system like in the comments.

It may also be the case that new accounts are disabled to circumvent messaging restrictions. Moreover, accounts that focus entirely on hate speech will be determined by this method.
