Good news for all the Instagrammers out there! Instagram has finally launched its search option using keywords. Now you do not require to type in hashtags or mentions to look for something. The platform has made this possible using a new software update.
Before the software update, you had to type in mentions, hashtags, or different account handles to look for something. Instagram recently announced to The Verge that it has introduced the keyword search option in four other countries: Canada, the UK, the US, and Ireland. For example, if you wanted to look up things related to the word “trippy,” you could find individual accounts with this word as a username or specific posts that had this #trippy hashtag. You can quickly type different keywords related to the word trippy and find all the content associated with this word. For example, you can type in the word “psychedelic” or “dimension” in the search bar; it will lead you to photos and videos related to it.
