Instagram is reportedly working on a new ‘Audio Rooms’ feature. A new screenshot by Palauzzi shows that the Direct Messages section of the app has a third Microphone icon. Moreover, it is to the left of the Compose and Video Call buttons at the top left of the app. The features are likely to enable via reverse engineering the app to enable hidden strings.

Furthermore, this suggests the feature is still at an early stage for Instagram. Another screenshot by the mobile developer shows a basic “Loading..” message next to his user profile on the bottom of the screen. In addition, there is also a microphone icon and a cross symbol, presumably to mute and unmute yourself and exit the Audio Room.

However, it looks like Audio Rooms arent the only feature Instagram seems to be working on. Another image that indicates the Facebook-owned app could be working on end-to-end encryption for some of its chats. The feature will probably show up when users try to start a new chat. It depicts by the label “Start end-to-end encrypted chat” above the contact’s name.

The arrival of end-to-end encryption on Instagram is the next step in Facebook’s plans to bring its chat services together. The move first started when the company was planning on making its chat services interoperable. It plans to do this by merging the chat services ‘backend’ of Instagram DMs, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp Messenger.

Facebook is also working on merging the chat features of its apps. Many Instagram users across the world have already found their direct messages linked to Messenger chat so that people on Facebook can send you a message on Instagram and vice versa. By introducing end-to-end encryption, this interoperability will be strengthened.
