Instagram is surprising users with new features before the new year rolls. The latest addition is a profile embed feature where users will get a miniature version of their profile that they can embed on third party websites or link to other user’s profiles just like they embed a certain post, without mentioning the username.

Other year-ender features that Instagram is rolling out is the Playback mode for Instagram stories and Reels visual replies. In this Playback feature, users can compile upto 10 stories to share with their followers to show their year in a flashback. The Reels Visual Replies let you respond to comments with a Reels video of up to 60 seconds.
