Facebook-owned Instagram has reportedly added a new feature that will allow its users to check when the user was active last time. The feature is quite similar to the add-on in WhatsApp and Messenger and it will be available for all the users soon.
According to a report by The Verge, Instagram users will now be able to see other users’ last seen. With this new feature, a user can see the activity status of people, whom he/she follow directly from the direct message section. The report reveals that the followers will not be able to see when you were last active on Instagram, but people you follow and to those whom you have sent a direct message, will be able to know the last active status.
These features can be disabled also and one can do the same by going to the Settings menu. After that scroll to ‘Show Activity Status’ in the menu and turn the toggle switch to an off state. This will disable the feature entirely, and you will not be able to see the activity status of other users as well
