Instagram rolled out a new feature called “collaborative groups” that allows you and your friends to save and share photos with each other, according to The Verge.

The new tool will enable users to create libraries of posts that they share with friends.

As per CEO Adam Mosseri’s IG Updates channel, users and their friends can save posts from their Instagram feeds, Explore pages, and even Direct Messages.

In order to use the feature:

• Hit the bookmark icon in the bottom-right corner of the post you want to save

• Select the option to create a new collaborative group

• Give it a name

• Switch to the option that says Allow friends to join this group

• Add up to 250 people to join your group

Earlier this month, Meta started testing its age verification tools on Instagram in more countries, including Canada and Mexico.

When users attempt to edit their date of birth on Instagram from under the age of 18 to 18 or over, the app will require them to verify their age using one of the three methods.

The test initially launched in the US and later rolled out in Brazil and Japan in October. Meanwhile, the age verification tools are being tested in more countries in Europe, Mexico, Canada, South Korea, Australia, and Japan.
