San Francisco: Facebook-owned photo-messaging app Instagram on Friday introduced a new feature "Nametag" to make the process of finding and adding people and accounts easier.
"`Nametag` is a customisable identification card that allows people to find your Instagram profile when it`s scanned. Your nametag is uniquely yours and makes it quick and fun to add people and accounts you discover in person," the photo-messaging app wrote in a blog-post late on Thursday.
The feature is available globally for both Android and iOS users starting Friday.
Since "Nametag" is a customisable feature, users have the liberty to add colours, emojis and selfies with different stickers and design their own identification card.
"To scan someone`s nametag, you can either swipe right into the camera, hover over the nametag and hold down on your screen, or enter the camera by tapping `Scan a nametag` when viewing your own," the post added.
Users would also be able to share their nametag with friends through text messages and over other platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp.
