The benefit is a shortened list of visible hashtags, limiting the amount of distractions within a post's caption.

Those of you who drown your Instagram captions in hashtags to rack up all those sweet, sweet likes for your photos (#and #you #know #who #you #are), Instagram appears to be testing a new feature just for you. At the very least, it will separate hashtags from from captions and make the app less irritating. For now, there doesn't seem to be a limit, but Wong explains that Instagram will figure that out before it rolls out the feature. Let's tackle each proposed feature one by one.

It's a feature that has always been the subject of rumours, but the company has been reluctant on rolling out the feature which has always been a mainstay of Twitter and Facebook.

This update will enable the users to pick out pictures and doodles from others' highlights and paste into their own. Users will be able to use each other's highlights making their posts more interactive.

We promised you good news at the beginning of the article and it's time to unravel. Finally, less annoying and more engaging posts! "What this suggests, is that Instagram continues to see strong adoption of video as a format, in particular for Stories, and thus they are extending photo features into video capabilities".

An Instagram spokesperson, however, told Mashable that it is not a feature the company is now building or testing.

The lure of gaining followers on Instagram has people straining to put their posts in front of as many people as possible.

"According to The Verge, who viewed two screenshots of the feature, the "seamless sharing" feature will introduce a "share to feed" button when you open the "." menu in the top right corner of a post.

Instagram is rumored to be testing a number of new features including a hashtag selector tool, the ability to geo-fence posts and a video-tagging feature, according to a TechCrunch report.
