Messenger Instagram features disabled

Facebook has notified its users that some of the features on the Messenger and Instagram will be temporarily available in Europe. Users in Europe have reported that they are seeing a message informing them about the disabling of the features.

However, Facebook did not inform about the number of features that have been disabled recently in the region. However, it can be accessed on its support pages. The list of disabled features include: Running polls on group chats, lack of stickers on Instagram, personalised replies on messenger, ability to give nicknames to contacts and no augmented-reality filters in direct messages on Instagram.

These features have been temporarily disabled to comply with new data usage rules in the European Union (EU) countries which come under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (ePrivacy Directive).
