What’s the new ‘’Quiet Mode’’ Feature on Instagram?

As its name implies, the new ‘’Quiet Mode’’ feature on Instagram enables users to put their profile on hold. Users will be able to set this mode at any time as well as to turn it off. So, imagine you have some important things to do, but you are easily disturbed by notifications. This new feature is perfect for you.

When this feature is on, you won’t get notifications. It can be set up as long as you need it. Not only will increase your productivity, but it will tell people that you need your ‘’off’’ time, i.e. time devoted to yourself. This means that people will get notifications that you are in quiet mode.

You can turn this feature on even if you don’t have important things to do. Let people know that you cannot be reached 24/7, all days in a month. You deserve to be on your own. It’s okay to be disconnected from the internet for some time.  So, we can notice that this feature is there to help younger generations to be on silent mode in order to get focus and concentration.

New ‘Quiet Mode’ Feature on Instagram

The New ‘’Quiet Mode’’ and younger population

Younger generations are more addicted to the Internet and easily distracted. Instagram wants to have such a feature to help younger generations to learn how to be off so that they can have enough concentration and focus on learning or any other important thing.

Older generations grew up without Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and any other social media, and they can easily set the limit for daily use of the Internet. It’s much more difficult for younger generations. The more time a day spent on the Internet, the more difficult it will be for them to function in the real world. However, this feature will be available only for New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the USA, Ireland and the UK on the first release. Other countries will have to wait for a bit.

Take some time for yourself

This new ‘’Quiet Mode’’ feature is really a significant improvement of Instagram, as one of the most influential social media. Being able to put your notifications on hold is surely a great thing when you want to focus and concentrate on important tasks. Luckily, we are among the first countries that will enjoy this feature.
