Instagram To Introduce "Nametags": A Copy Of Snapchat's SnapCodes

Instagram To Introduce

And no, it's not the usual 300 we all take trying to find the one good pic!

If you don't have an advanced and premium smartphone which comes with a bokeh-style Portrait mode on the native camera, Instagram is offering the same mode for absolutely free on your older device.

A TechCrunch reader who compared the Apple and Instagram features showed slightly more facial blurriness around the edges with the Instagram Focus feature, but still said its wider availability still made it an advantage.

Photos with a bokeh effect (blurred backgrounds) become all the rage since Apple decided to make it "cool" with the introduction of the iPhone 7 Plus.

In less than four years, we have issued 794 more export permissions, for a total value of over 1.3 billion dollars. You need the government even to grant permission to export".

That said, this Focus mode can be found in the Instagram Stories section sitting right next to the Superzoom option under the record button. Interesting enough, you can also take a video, which is cool! Clearly, this feature isn't for when you're trying to make your followers jealous that you're in Paris or on a tropical vacation. "Focus mode leverages background segmentation and face detection technology", an Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch.

Instagram have released a new feature that mimics the only thing that makes the latest and most expensive iPhone models barely worth the money. The "Focus" format will be available on iPhone 6S and up, as well as select Android devices, as part of the Instagram version 39.0 update.

This step will be a challenge to social media rivals life Snapchat as it doesn't come with such camera features. So yes, you would be able to add a new story to your Instagram using this advanced Portrait Mode.

I was playing around with the setting this morning - don't worry you wont be subjected to the selfies - and I'm not sure I enjoy the focus filter all that much. With the Nametags in place, you can simply scan the image and follow the person.
