Meta has announced the introduction of a new profile-switching interface that will make it easier for users to stay on top of notifications and navigate between Facebook and Instagram.

The new feature will enable users to easily switch between their Facebook and Instagram profiles if they have added them to the same Accounts Center. Additionally, people can now see their Facebook and Instagram profiles in one place. Notifications will also be conveniently displayed for each profile, making it easier to stay up to date on activity across Facebook and Instagram.

Meta is currently testing this new feature globally on iOS, Android and web.

“We know that many people use more than one of our apps to pursue different interests, reach a broader audience or share different aspects of who they are with different groups of people. With that in mind, we’re simplifying the process of creating and switching between accounts and profiles”, Meta said in a statement.

Meta has also introduced a new account registration and login flow that will enable people to more easily log in and create new accounts across Facebook and Instagram.

Users new to Meta products can create a Facebook or Instagram account and then use that account to sign up for additional ones. On the other hand, users who have both a Facebook and an Instagram account can now easily use login information from one app to access the other, as long as their accounts are in the same Accounts Center.
