To make the connectivity easier, Instagram has introduced a new feature to let users see when their friends are available to chat. The feature is meant to connect with friends on Instagram easier.
In the simplest manner, the feature which could be activated by the user and could be turned off at any time. Providing details in a blog post, Instagram shares that when your friends are active online a green dot would be seen next to their profile picture in various spaces within the app, including the Direct Inbox and your friend list when you share a post from feed. You will only see the status of friends who follow you or people who you have talked to in Direct.
You can choose to hide your own status as well as turn off the ability to see when your friends are active and it should be remembered that you will only ever see the green dot for friends who follow you or people you have already talked to in Direct. The update will give you chance to make more real-time conversations with friends.
