Instagram is working to expand search capabilities with the addition of showing videos and photos as results. Facebook’s proprietary photo and video sharing platform said the change in Search is currently under development and will be rolled out to users soon. In addition, Instagram is also working to add support for other languages to Search. Currently, Instagram Search shows results divided into Main, Accounts, Audio, Tags and Places tabs. Instagram says it’s moving toward a full search results page experience that makes it even easier to dig deeper into your interests.
The company announced in a blog that it is working on improvements aimed at making discovery easier. In the future, it will show photo and video results in Instagram Search, in the Top tab itself.
“We are also improving search results for exploration. For example, your search for “space” will also show photos and videos related to the space. This is especially useful when you don’t have an exact username or hashtag in mind when researching a particular topic,” Instagram says in its blog post. He shared a screenshot of what the new search results will look like, and the design seems to have taken a lot of inspiration from the look of the search results in TikTok.
Instagram is also expanding the keywords you can use to search for content. Instagram says it is currently focused on getting correct keyword search results in English, but will add support for other languages in the future. The company has not provided a schedule for the release of these features.
