Update: 2020-01-16


Vishal Shah is Instagram’s head of product, and he joins us to explain how he’s thinking about the world’s most popular visual sharing app as a new year begins.

Vishal talks to Matt Navarra and Martin SFP Bryant about how Instagram decides what to add to — and take away from — the app, how messaging app Threads is developing, why DMs are coming to the web now after so long, an insider’s view on the end of like counts, changes to IGTV, and much more. He answers a bunch of listener’s questions, too.

Meanwhile, Matt and Martin talk over the week’s news, share the latest tests and tools you need to know about, and share the joy of wearing makeup for the day after you’ve been on breakfast TV.
