Instagram introduces ‘Rage Shake’ to report app issues


Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram has announced that the company is adding two new features to its platform to improve user experience.

The first feature called Rage Shake will allow users to report an issue by shaking their device while Instagram is open. Then, a pop-up prompt will appear on their screen, asking “Did something go wrong?”.

''This feature will give Instagram feedback that will help it prioritize bug fixes. You can explain exactly what happened, how you ended up in that place, and all of the emotions and feels that you’ve got going on, and we’ll have someone take a look at it, Mosseri said.

Carousel deletion, which Mosseri coins a “finally feature,” will provide users with the ability to delete a single image from a photo carousel. Users can simply click the three dots menu at the top right of a post, select edit, then swipe to the photo they would like to remove and press the delete icon in the top left corner to remove an image.

The carousel deletion feature is currently only available on iOS devices, though all U.S. Instagram users can access the “rage shake” feature, regardless of their operating system.
