Instagram will tell you when you're spending too much time on Instagram

Share

Instagram is trying to fix this vicious cycle by building a feature that will let users track how much time they've spent on the platform. By showing users how much time they spend on Instagram, the social networking service might risk prompting people to spend less time on the app. He also said that "it's the responsibility of all companies to be honest about this".

However, Systrom did not reveal any details about how the feature will work or when it might roll out.

Systrom did not specify if the feature will show the total time someone spends on the app, or whether these figures will be broken down further by day, week, or month. For example, you'll be able to set an alarm telling you to put the phone down after a specific period of usage.

Systrom confirmed the feature after a developer named Jane Manchun Wong dug into the computer code of Instagram's mobile app and noticed an upcoming "Usage Insights" section under testing. At I/O 2018, Google announced Digital Wellbeing, a new initiative to tell its users on Android the breakdown of time spent using their mobile device.

It is hard to judge whether these technology companies are really concerned about the well being of their consumers or is it a mere attempt to address the concern among their core users.
