How to get Instagram update that allows you to track time

Most of us often find ourselves spending way more time watching YouTube videos or scrolling through Instagram after every few minutes and as we all know, too much of anything is most certainly harmful in many ways.

Luckily, companies like Google and Apple have already taken a few measures to help users be made aware of how much time they spend on certain apps in a day. Although it might not seem as much by simply showing users the amount of time they use an application it does create a certain guilt amongst most and makes us put down or devices and do other important stuff.

Instagram has jumped on board too by offering a feature that allows users to track the amount of time spent using the app. If you’re interested in getting the new update, then here’s what to do.


Update Instagram

If the feature isn’t available for you already, then you would have to update Instagram from the Google Play Store. To do this, launch the Play Store > My apps & games > Instagram > Update. 

Once the update is installed you can then check out the feature by launching the Instagram application and heading over to your Profile page and swiping in from the right edge, then tap on Your Activity. 

It’s important to keep track of your time and spend time wisely since we often lose track of time while scrolling through hundreds upon hundreds of pictures on Instagram daily.
