Instagram has announced the new update to bring you even closer to the people and things you love. New updates also include new camera effect for stories and topic channel. Now you can video chat within Instagram directly either with just one person or with a group of person. Video chat gives the experience of real-time video in private space and helps an individual to feel close and connected with the friends when they can’t be together.
A large number of people are already in Instagram and with the help of video chat, one can seamlessly connect across iOS and Android and that too without a phone number. To start a video chat, swipe directly into your inbox and open any message thread. Tap the new camera icon that appears in the right corner, and the video chat will ring your friends’ phones so they do not miss it.
Here is the post related to an Instagram and other social networking sites-
1-Video chat feature-
While on the video chat one can also minimize the video and multitask on Instagram like sending messages and photos direct, browsing your feed, posting a story and many more. Video chat is perfect for group and one can video chat with up to four people at a time and the video will expand as more friends join.
If there is any active video chat in the group thread, the camera icon will turn blue. To join the fun simply tap on the camera icon and if one wants to leave the video chat, tap the red phone icon at the bottom. If one blocks a person then that person will no longer be able to video chat with you. One can also mute a person if he does not want to receive notifications from them.
The second update introduced by Instagram is new camera effects for stories. Whether one wants to make someone laugh or wants to add some glam to their selfies, they can easily use the new update introduced by Instagram.
3-For you channel-
The third update introduced by Instagram is a topic channel for the millions of users to discover the most interesting content.

One of the channels is called “For You” which has a mix of posts tailored according to individual interests. Instagram also added channels on topics like Fashion, Beauty, Sports, and Art.
