Instagram adds Spotify and GoPro integration, video chat, AR camera effects

Instagram's announcement says "creative effects from your favorite accounts are coming soon, including Ariana Grande, Baby Ariel, Liza Koshy, Vogue, and Buzzfeed", but doesn't give a specific launch date just yet.

Today, we're announcing plans to build Clear History.

We're redesigning Explore to make it easier to discover things you're interested in.

While now archive posts (images and videos) for Instagram Stories are available in the form of a list with date tags, Instagram is reportedly looking to change the UI, just a bit, to help users arrange the archive better.

Instagram is now testing out the video chat feature and will roll it out globally in the coming weeks. After that, you can post the final product as a Story or send it to friends as a Direct message.

Code inside the app led to rumors of the platform adding the feature in March, and now Instagram has confirmed video chats are coming. Building on that success, the new Explore design is adding topic channels to uncover content on your personal interests and tastes as well as offer more control over content. Instagram noted that you don't have to connect your Instagram account to other apps in order to share to Stories.

On Tuesday, May 1, Zuckerberg announced that WhatsApp would soon be bringing group video calling to the popular communication app, making it possible for folks to have face-to-face conversations with multiple people at once. Should you choose to use them, well, that's up to you.

Facebook's longing gaze at a future ruled by AR headsets is no secret: Zuckerberg has spoken repeatedly about how the future of computing is worn on the face, whether that's through virtual or augmented reality, and the company's acquisition of Oculus and shrinking of its technology to be more mobile heralds the coming wave of smaller, more practical AR.

According to Instagram, users will be able to engage in both one-on-one video chats as well as "a small group" (it didn't reveal how big that group could be).

'That means you turn any video into a National Basketball Association dunkcam or add a cloud of hearts and Pomeranians to fluff up your photo, ' Instagram says.

It was through a tweet by Jane Manchun Wong, the photos sharing application is testing it's latest feature where the user can react to the stories of other users. For example, if you follow a lot of cat Instagram profiles, there might be an Animals section on the Explore page.
