The new feature was originally discovered by Jane Manchun Wong, a computer scientist with a record of reverse engineering popular apps to uncover upcoming features. Wong's find was first reported by TechCrunch, and confirmed by Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom on Twitter.

Wong dug around in Instagram's code and found a feature seemingly known internally as "time spent." This is seemingly visualised on the app as a sidebar feature called "Usage insights."

There's no further detail on what the "Usage insights" feature will actually show, like your overall time spent on Instagram, or whether it just shows a limited time period of a month or a day.

Systrom simply tweeted "It's true" when TechCrunch first reported the story.

The new feature follows Google introducing time management controls for Android, with a new dashboard that lets users set how much time they want to spend on each app. When they use up their allotted time, the app will gray out on their phone screen.
