Users may also receive a prompt asking if they want to turn on ‘Quiet Mode’ after spending ‘a few minutes’ on Instagram at night.

On the other hand, “Quiet Mode” is currently available to users in the UK, USA, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, while it will be available “soon” in other countries.

“Today, we’re introducing new ways for people, especially teens, to manage their time and experience on Instagram. These new features continue to create things that are meaningful to teens and genuinely useful to creators,” Meta said in a statement.
Meta hopes it will encourage users to set limits with their friends and followers by stating that “Quiet Mode” is not available to those in their networks.
CONTINUOUS NOTIFICATIONS HAVE BEEN MADE TO YOUTH
According to the firm, feedback has revealed that younger users often feel pressured to “feel they need to be reachable” through the platform.
