Instagram Introduces 'Focus' Feature In Its Newest Updated Version

Treasured photos and videos can sometimes get lost in their original form, but now there are few ways to easily access the high-resolution originals if they have been posted on the social network. And as proof of that, the company lets you download a copy of everything you ever shared over the platform. Instagram says those with an iPhone SE and above can use the feature and so can users of certain unlisted Android devices.

Instagram today announced two new features it's bringing to its app for iOS and Android.

Also, it is not clear that whether you will be able to see the downloaded videos and the photos which are in the same resolution and which can be easily be seen and liked. On May 25, new European privacy laws will go into effect that requires apps like Instagram and Facebook to disclose exactly what data they harvest from users and how that data is used. It does not allow you to save images, or download the ones you have already posted. Whether the feature will be limited to download the photos and videos shared through their profile or they would also get the backup of all the stories that they have saved on their profile. So you will be able to delete your Instagram account without deleting your data which includes photos, videos, and messages. According to TechCrunch, data portability will give Instagram users the option to move to a rival image-sharing service.
