Well now, this Facebook-owned company has started testing a new feature that will tell you how much time you spend in the app.

Instagram app on Android has a hidden code that details the new "Usage Insights" feature revealing the amount of time spent looking at those square-shaped photos on the platform.

The feature was discovered in the Instagram for Android app by TechCrunch, which reports that Usage Insights includes a "time spent" element.

Systrom says Instagram wants the time spent within the app to be "positive and intentional". Understanding how time online impacts people is important, and it's the responsibility of all companies to be honest about this.

However, he also added that United have a number of risky attacking players that could hurt Chelsea . For United to return to the very top of the English game, this malaise must be shifted.

Though it could potentially result in a decrease in usage, the feature would help users manage their time better, and perhaps help draw attention to any smartphone addiction issues going on. A line of computer code for the feature mentions the words "time_spent", Wong said in a tweet. "I take that responsibility seriously". This is similar to the Facebook Reactions that were rolled out back in February 2016.

When the Android P Beta was announced at the Google I/O developer conference last week, the search giant also unveiled a new feature of the next version of Android called "Digital Wellbeing" meant to let users monitor and limit phone usage.

We expect to see Instagram rolling out all these features in the coming weeks.
