Instagram introduced two new features Tuesday: a Focus camera format and an @mention sticker.
Focus is located next to Superzoom on the Instagram camera, and it enables users to create photos or videos where the person who is the subject is featured prominently and the background “softly blurs.”
Focus is available for “select” Android devices, as well as the iPhone SE, 6S, 6S+, 7, 7+, 8, 8+ and X.
The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network described the @mention sticker in a blog post: “After you’ve taken a photo or video in your stories camera, open the stickers tray, tap the @mention sticker, start typing the name of the account you want to mention and select from the options that appear. You can then rotate, scale and place your sticker wherever you’d like.”
The @mention sticker is only available via iOS.
