An Android developer mastering in reverse engineering Alessandro Paluzzi shared a screenshots highlighting all the upcoming features added in Instagram new version in future.
He said, Instagram is working on an affiliate marketing program that will let influencers monetize their content on the platform. The new Affilliate setting will appear in the Creator section on the app and users will be able to sign up for it by following a few simple steps. however, the affiliate marketing feature may not be available for all users at launch.
Instagram is working on a new “Content controls” setting that will let users block specific keywords in their direct messages. The setting will show up in the privacy section of the app and Instagram users will have the option to add keywords they wish to mute.
The app will then block all direct messages containing said keywords automictically. Users will also get the option to choose if they want to turn on keyword blocking for everyone or for specific accounts.
All the features mentioned on Paluzzi above are currently under development and it may takes few months to released in final build of Instagram. We’ll update this post as soon as the updates are pushed.
