Sending a message with a /silent (also available on Instagram as “@silent”) prevents annoying notifications on a group chat. Users can take advantage of the hashtag when sharing late-night epiphanies without disturbing the peace of all those sleeping.


Typing /gif plus a chosen topic can help users easily discover relevant graphics for a chat.
