Recently reports suggest that Instagram will add Audio and Video calls to its app. Now Instagram’s Android Application Package (APK) shows there is an icon for a Portrait shutter for the Stories camera. This allows people to shoot stylized portraits with bokeh effect-blurred backgrounds or other lighting effects.

Portrait mode simulates the look you’d get out of a professional camera by blurring the background in shooting photos, thus making the subject stand out.

Instagram declined to comment on the findings, currently the feature is available on most Android smartphone and iPhones as well. If it gets added, ‘Portrait mode’ will join Instagram’s variety of camera features, for example ‘Boomerang’, which allows you to shoot a mini-video and loop it back and forth, and ‘Hyperlapse’ – essentially a time-lapse mode.
