New Delhi: In an effort to increase the number of time management tools available, Meta Instagram on Thursday introduced a brand new feature dubbed Quiet Mode. By turning off incoming alerts, auto-replying to direct messages, and setting your status to “quiet mode” to let friends know you’re not using the app at the moment, the feature seeks to ease users’ concerns about taking a break from the service.
The social media platform has also launched additional parental controls and other tools to curate recommendations, all aimed at ensuring the safety of teens using the software. This isn’t the first time that Instagram has tried to develop tools to help users manage time.

The app already features a function that notifies users when their daily app usage exceeds a certain limit and allows them to monitor and limit it. Additionally, there are tools for pausing, snoozing, restricting, and unfollowing Pages, groups, and people to help reduce engagement with addictive or unwanted content.
