Instagram decides not to roll out screenshot notification feature

Earlier this year in February, Instagram started testing a feature that would inform the users if someone took a screenshot of their Story posts. The feature was in beta testing and only select users were part of it. The feature was met with backlash as users had grown used to taking screenshots of Story posts for whatever it is they intended to do with them.
