Instagram recently introduced a new feature that makes it easier for you to add friends in person – Nametag.
Nametag is a unique yet customizable identification card that allows people to find your Instagram profile when it’s scanned. In a way, it works like a QR code for Instagram.
To try out nametag, go to your profile, tap the button with three lines at the top, and select “Nametag.” You can personalize your nametag by touching anywhere on the screen or by tapping the button at the top to try other designs, such as colors, emojis, and selfies with different stickers.
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. You can also share your nametag with friends through text messages and over other platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp. Just press the arrow at the top right of your nametag.
Nametag is now available globally on both Android and iOS.
