Instagram confirmed it was testing the Nametags feature to TechCrunch, which received screenshots from reader Genady Okrain who is also founder of Momento GIFs.
Now, Instagram has rolled out the tool, dubbed Focus, more widely, effectively adding a camera mode that blurs out picture backgrounds while keeping the foreground sharp. You can either tap on the new mode or swipe over to it. After launching "Superzoom" past year, Instagram is now introducing a new camera format called "Focus" that you can find when accessing your camera on your app. Tap on the "Focus" option and point your camera (front or back) at a person's face.
Instagram has launched a new "Focus" camera format that allows you to easily take portraits of yourself or your friends. You can't drag, or tap and hold on images to save them.
After you take the photo, you can do the usual creative stuff like add filters, stickers, text or whatever it is that you usually do in your Instagram Stories. Focus will be available on Apple iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and select Android handsets (2015 and later). Moving away from the new camera mode, Stories' users will now also have access to a new user mention sticker. The resultant selfie image will then be used to create a pattern, similar to the emoji pattern. You can check if it's available for you when you update to version 39.
Test it out and let us know what you think below. I'm pretty much sure that you are very well aware of these options since you are already using this options a long ago. The new feature will allow users to shoot portrait photos along with the bokeh effect.
