Instagram testing new ‘take a break’ feature

Instagram is testing a new feature to remind users when they’ve spent a long time on the app.

To use the “take a break” feature, users opt in and choose how long they can browse Instagram before an alarm rings. The feature prompts you to take a break from Instagram after 10, 20, or 30 minutes on the app.

This new feature is an effort to try to give people more control over their Instagram experience.

Currently, the feature is in a testing phase for certain users. Instagram says it may launch “take a break” to a wider audience in December.
