This week, the Meta-owned photo and video sharing social networking platform’s head Adam Mosseri has introduced two new useful features – Carousel Deletion and Rage to Shake.
On Wednesday, November 17, Instagram head Adam Mosseri has revealed two new features in a tweet through a video, where he practically explained how the ‘Rage to Shake’ feature works to report an issue and the new ‘Carousel Deletion’ allows users to delete an individual image from a carousel.

Rage to Shake
Using the new Rage to Shake feature, users can easily and quickly report any issue on the app by just shaking their phones. The app has already included a feature called “Did something go wrong?” in the Settings > Help > Report a problem to briefly explain what’s not working on Instagram.
While previously, you have to go into the particular section in the Instagram Settings to outline any issue running on the app, the new rage-shaking process makes it much easier to inform if something goes wrong in the social networking app.
According to Adam Mosseri, the “Rage to Shake” feature is accessible on both Android and iOS platforms but is only available in the United States as of now.
The second new feature Instagram introduced is named “Carousel Deletion,” which Mosseri calls “finally” in a short pronunciation. It lets users delete every single post from a carousel.
Earlier, when we want to delete any specific image or video from a carousel (allows to share up to 10 images and videos in a single swipeable post), we have to delete that entire post and reupload our favorites again.
But with the new “Carousel Deletion” feature, which is also known as “finally,” we can delete a particular photo and video from the content intact by tapping the three-dot menu at the top right corner > Edit > a bin icon located at the left corner of the post > tap ‘Done’ to save the edited post.
This new feature is currently only available to access on iOS and the support on Android is coming soon behind.
