The popular photo-sharing app could soon allow users to make voice and video calls. Earlier today, they informed about the Video and Voice calling features from the piece of code embedded in the apk file. This feature is also found in Android smartphones (not just the premium flagships) which means that there are several users out there who can always take a photo with blurred background using their phone's camera and then share it on Instagram Stories. One important thing to remember here is that the feature could very well be in the testing phase within Instagram, and employee response could lead to it being scrapped altogether or delayed.

Instagram's blatant copy of Snapchat's "Stories" has been the company's smartest move, as 300 million of its active users have embraced the feature within a year of its launch.
