First look at Instagram Nametags its clone of Snapchat QR codes Josh Constine @ 1 day

Seeing as most new Instagram users will probably breeze through these set up steps, many people will probably not realise what they are even doing here. The tool is quite similar to "Download Your Information" tool that is now available on Facebook. For example, as well as blurring out the background of the image, Instagram Focus has a tendency to encroach on the face itself, making its parameters look a little blurred. You can either tap to take a picture or hold to make a video.

Instagram says Focus is available on the iPhone 6S and up and select Android devices as part of an app update.

It appears Instagram is once again taking a page from Snapchat's playbook. The first addition is a feature called Focus which is basically the platform's version of the popular portrait mode camera trick we've been seeing in smartphones nowadays.

The details of this feature are yet to be finalized and Instagram did not go into any detail at the moment.

When asked how the new focus feature works without dual cameras an Instagram spokesperson explained, "Focus mode leverages background segmentation and face detection technology". From there, the Focus button wikl be right by the Superzoom option. The feature has gained much popularity especially for those who hadn't taken to the expensive DSLR cameras but were able to get the same results on their phones.

At this juncture, the beta users will not be able to share or scan other Nametags but this feature is expected to be implemented soon. You could also add the image to your story if you like. One could already tag their friends in their Stories, but if you've ever wanted a dedicated sticker for it, you now have it. Things are pretty unknown as of the moment and we are not sure about anything just yet.
