After Google’s new digital initiative taken to make sure you spend more time with friends and family instead of your screens. Instagram is now planning something similar too!

TechCrunch a Technology based site has found a “Code buried in Instagram’s Android app reveals a “Usage Insights” feature that will show users their “time spent”.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom has confirmed the upcoming feature with a tweet that said, “It’s true.”

Systrom continued to explain via two more tweets. “We’re building tools that will help the IG community know more about the time they spend on Instagram – any time should be positive and intentional,” he wrote.
