Instagram will soon show how long you spend looking at avocado toast

Systrom confirmed the feature after a developer named Jane Manchun Wong dug into the computer code of Instagram's mobile app and noticed an upcoming "Usage Insights" section under testing.

It was reported yesterday that there's an unannounced "Usage Insights" feature in Instagram's Android app which will enable users to keep track of the time that they spend on the social network. Of course, it's possible it could display all of these.

Having said that Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom also confirmed the development of this tool by tweeting "We're building tools that will help the IG community know more about the time they spend on Instagram - any time should be positive and intentional".

If you've ever wondered how much time you spend flipping through photos on Instagram, then you're about to get a wake-up call. It hasn't been enabled as yet so it's unclear when this feature will be rolled out for all users. The new tool was discovered during an APK teardown, and shows the user the time spent on the app, though there aren't enough details to know the scope of the data provided. Coming with Android P, users will also find an alerts feature allowing you to set timers that prompt you to take a break from each app. But it doesn't block access to the video-streaming site, so you still have to use all your willpower to close the app (before immediately opening another one, quite likely).
