Once the feature is made available, one can remove someone’s photos, stories or both from your feed.
The app previously made it possible for users to mute someone’s stories.
Should users feel the need to mute someone’s stories or photos, all they have to do is click on the three dots at the top of a post or profile and simply click on the MUTE option.
Here are some of the reactions from elated users:
