It's inevitable for technology to progress, something to also applies to mobile apps. When it comes to content, photos are just one of many we see online. That's why Instagram no longer considers it enough and has been working on expanding the functionality of its platform.
Yesterday, Adam Mosseri (Head of Instagram) declared that the platform is "no longer just a square photo-sharing app". He confirms that the company is working on new features for Creators, Video, Shopping, and Messaging. We've seen hints of these in recent months, such as auto-captioning for Stories, Instagram Shop, Instagram Reels, and more.
