Instagram is experimenting with a new feature called ‘Take a Break’

Instagram has begun testing a new ‘Take a Break’ function that allows users to disconnect from the social media network for a short period of time.

The functionality was introduced in a tweet by the company’s CEO, Adam Mosseri. This new tool, according to Mosseri, is an opt-in control that allows users to receive break reminders in-app after spending a particular amount of time on Instagram to prevent Instagram addiction.

Furthermore, the said function will not be enabled by default, and users will have to switch it on after using the app for 10, 20, or 30 minutes to receive in-app reminders.

On Twitter, Mosseri also posted a brief video explaining why the new function is being developed. He also added that they sought assistance from third-party experts on what they should be and how they should phrase taking a vacation.

The new ‘Take a Break’ function on Instagram is set to be live in December.
