After rolling out support for Reels in the Instagram Lite app late last month, the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform is now working on a bunch of new features. This includes a new affiliate program, an option to mute specific keywords in direct messages, and more.

Android developer and reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi recently shared screenshots that highlight all the features mentioned above. As you can see in the attached tweets, Instagram is working on an affiliate marketing program that allows influencers to monetize their content on the platform.

The new Affiliate setting will appear in the Creator section of the app, and users will be able to subscribe to it by following a few simple steps. However, the affiliate marketing feature may not be available to all users at launch.

In addition, Instagram is preparing new “content controls” that will allow users to block specific keywords in their direct messages. The setting will appear in the privacy section of the app, and users will have the option to add keywords they wish to mute. The app will then block all direct messages containing the mentioned keywords automatically. Users will also have the option to choose whether they want to turn on keyword blocking for everyone or for specific accounts.

Furthermore, Paluzzi discovered that Instagram is working on a new post editing option called Brightness.AI. Although we don’t have any specific information about this feature at the moment, it’s safe to assume that it will most likely help users adjust the brightness of their posts automatically.

All the above features are currently under development and there is no official word from Instagram regarding their release. We will update this post as soon as we learn more about it.
