Rage Shake will allow users to instantly shake their phone with the Instagram app open to report an issue. So if you encounter an issue or come across a random bug in Stories, the feed, posts, or audio, you can simply shake your phone to bring up the issue-reporting UI. You can then type in the issue or bug that you encountered and then submit it.
The new Carousel Deletion feature allows users to delete a single picture from a carousel of images they might have shared. Earlier users had to delete the full carousel to get rid of a single photo or video inside of it. Now, they can simply go into the edit section of the post and delete the selected photo/video.
