Instagram has been inviting a select audience to test the new version of its Android app in a very limited beta.

A new report today from TNW shares that Instagram is testing out a wide range of new features including a native Regram button, an archive Stories feature, a share to WhatsApp option, an iOS beta version of its app, and more.

In addition, Instagram is also introducing ways for the user to control how their content is played by the receiver: they can choose "One View" if they want it played only once, or they can opt for "Allow Replay" to let friends view them multiple times. We don't have a lot of information about this - other than the test version being ugly - but it seems Instagram is tapping Giphy, like you do, to source GIFs in-app.

However, other new features have recently been added to the app.

The Next Web said the gif function will - like Twitter - let users search for gifs to add to posts and stories using the popular website Giphy.

This is something TNW had previously reported, but it seems the test version may allow users to save their Stories longer than 24 hours.

Yet another new feature TMN detailed with a screenshot is a bit more curious than the others.

After no show at IFFI, Sanal's film to be screened at IFFK
The jury that deliberated till late last night, voted 7:4 in favour of the film to be screened on the last day. The letter further accuses the producer of deliberately violating the rules of the Cinematograph Act.

Favorite-friends: Earlier in the year, Instagram reportedly tested a favorite-friends which allows you to share content with a select group of friends.

Other notable unreleased features that may be implemented on Instagram include: archiving stories, closest friends lists, share to WhatsApp, top emoji and hashtag lists; and many more. It actually reminds us a lot of Myspace's Top 8, which we can only hope we're part of for you. For what would you share with another user on his page, click on the picture with two arrows under the selected post.

Using the button to repost a photo will presumably share it through your feed while properly attributing the photographer, linking back to their account, and contributing to the original post's social activity.

Oddly enough, your closest friends won't get a notification when you add them. The screenshots suggest iOS users now get to join the fun too.

Last but not least is also a mysterious "add coffee" option.

The firm updated this with a new feature that allows friends to request to join a live video.
