Today Instagram announced a new ‘Mute’ feature, a way to control what posts you see on Instagram. The new feature lets you hide posts in your feed from certain accounts, without unfollowing them. The account you mute won’t be made aware that you muted them and you can unmute them at any time in the future. You’ll still get notified about any comments or posts that you’re tagged in.
To mute an account, tap the … menu in the corner of the post. From there, you can choose whether to mute posts, or mute posts and stories from an account. You can also mute posts and stories by pressing and holding on a story in your tray, or from a profile.
The feature is being slowly rolled out over the next few weeks. So some users will have it before others.
