Instagram mute is a feature that allows you to silence someone on your feed without unfollowing them. Sometimes you can get sick of your old friend’s workout posts and stories. We all feel like that, so that is a global feel. And that’s why we needed Instagram mute. Yet, you feel like it would not be appropriate to unfollow or block them as you wish to maintain the relationship in real life, though you do not want to offend him or her. With Instagram mute that will not be a problem anymore.
You can mute the hell out of them.
Instagram users waited for this feature for long enough and it is finally introduced in May 2018. When you mute a user, you don’t see their posts or their stories on your feed, or both. You can still observe their account and see the posts or stories but your feed will stay clean. Here’s how to mute people. (Instagram Support)
How to use Mute Someone
- Open Instagram on your iOS or Android devices.
- Go to the person’s profile you wish to mute.
- Tap the three dotted icon at the top right corner.
- Tap the Mute option.
- You can choose to mute just posts only, just stories only, or you can mute both.
- Using Instagram mute has been successful.
You can still watch all of the stories of a muted user if you scroll to the end of your Story feed, they will be here with Stories you’ve already watched. If you wish to unmute someone, you can follow the same process to do so.
