Instagram users might soon get the chance to hop on board with upcoming features before they roll out to everyone. Meta's social media platform is reportedly gearing up to introduce a fresh setting dubbed "Early access to features," as per a snapshot shared by mobile developer Alessandro Paluzzi.

AI-Powered Chat Themes on the Horizon

According to Paluzzi, who's renowned for uncovering unreleased Instagram features, the platform is cooking up AI-powered chat themes and the option for users to snag early peeks at new functionalities. Paluzzi's latest revelation hints at an upcoming feature called "Create with AI," which would let users craft personalised chat themes using AI algorithms. This move aligns Instagram with its sibling platform WhatsApp, which is also in the works on a similar chat theme feature.
