New Instagram features have been introduced to enhance the user experience with the app. The features, which is a result of an update on the app, are the first after the rebranding of the mother company’s name to Meta.
The two new updates: Rage shaking reporting and carousel picture deletion come as exciting improvements to the app’s overall experience.
In the new updates, users can report a problem by simply “rage shaking” their phones. Even though it sounds strange, the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri said that it will help users of the app describe how they feel about anything they encounter that causes them to get frustrated.
The company hopes to deal with bug fixes easily than it already does.
How the Rage Shake works
If the app is not working as it should,
- Shake the phone while it is open
- A pop-up screen will appear asking, “Did something go wrong?”
- There will be a section for you to report the problem.
- Type in your concern.
- A team will look at it and work on resolving the issue.
The company hopes that this will encourage user experience feedback and improve big fixes.

Carousel Photo deletion feature
One of the new Instagram features now is the ability to delete a carousel picture without deleting the entire post.
One would say finally Instagram found a way around it because it seemed tasking to have to delete an entire post because one picture was not right to be added to the carousel.
Now, this is a thing of the past, with the new update and feature of Instagram, users can now delete a single photo from a group carousel.
How to delete a single photo from a carousel
- Open the app
- Go to the three dots menu at the top right
- Tap on “edit”
- Swipe to the photo you want to get rid of
- You will see a delete icon in the top left
- Click on the icon, and that will let you remove the photo from the carousel.
Availability of the new Instagram features
This feature is currently only available to US users only on both Android and iOS.
