Soon, make video calls using Instagram

Next, GoPro users can also easily upload videos easily using the GoPro app as they now can share their action clips directly to Instagram stories. As an element of F8 developer conference of its parent firm, Instagram is launching video calling, app integration, a new Explorer page, anti-bullying feature, and AR effects, all within one update.

Just tap the share button in an app like Spotify to share what you're listening to directly into the camera.

The social media platform is also gaining support for third-party AR experiences, such as face filters, text styles and stickers.

Users can now have group video chat on Instagram.

Today, our global developer community gathered in San Jose for F8, an annual two-day event where developers come together to explore the future of technology.

The firm also introduced a new way to share activity to your Stories directly from other apps. Further, Instagram has received GoPro and Spotify integration to enhance the user experience.

Instagram is also be taking a strong stance on bullying by adding a filter for offensive comments.

Fourth in the list is about a redesigned Instagram Explore. There is a new anti bullying feature also added to the platform for the users. "More fun creative effects from your favourite accounts are coming soon, including Ariana Grande, Baby Ariel, Liza Koshy, Vogue, and Buzzfeed", Instagram said. Here, people will be exposed to user-designed filters based on the accounts that they follow. The Explore page now groups photos and videos by topics and categories, which are present on top of the page as a scrollable carousel. "This means that if you're following one of the Instagram partners" account, you'll soon start seeing some of its AR effects within the Instagram Stories feature. You can even minimize the ongoing video session and continue the chat, while simultaneously being engaged in other activities on Instagram. Now, you will be able to browse more content related to your interests. For long the popular photo-sharing platform lacked a way to make private calls in chats and only allowed you to send a short video that lasted up to a few seconds.

"That means you can try out Kylie Jenner's favorite lip colors in your selfie, add a cloud of hearts and Pomeranians to fluff up your photo, or turn any video into a National Basketball Association dunkcam", the company said in a press release. The feature is embedded in the Direct Messaging section of the app.

While some of these features have already gone live, Facebook has promised all these features will be rolled out in as part of the Instagram update in coming weeks.
