Instagram will tell you how much time you spend

We'll soon know just how much of a time suck Instagram

Instagram is developing a new feature to show users just how long they spend on the app, its chief executive has confirmed.

When most sites are clamoring harder than ever for your time and clicks, it's interesting that Instagram is building a tool that might actually cause some users to put down their phones for a while and take a break from tapping and swiping.

The coding was first discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, a computer scientist, but was later confirmed by Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom.

However, Systrom did not reveal any details about how the feature will work or when it might roll out.

A leaked Instagram feature shows users how much time they spend on the service. He also says tech companies need to be honest with users about the time they're spending online. For example, if you find out how many hours of your life you've spent on Instagram, you might be more shocked and thus unwilling to use it further, rather than a daily report that could help you curb the habit.

As of now, there's no word on whether Instagram will show you the total amount of time you have spent inside the Instagram app right from the day you joined in, or, will only show it from the time since the "Usage Insights" tool is rolled out. Instagram is not alone here.

Last week at Google I/O, the company unveiled a Digital Wellbeing platform for Android P. This will make it easier for Android device owners to limit their smartphone usage, by setting restrictions.
