Artifact, a new artificial intelligence (AI) powered personalized news feed application from Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, is now available to everyone along with new features.
Now anyone can download and use the new application and no waiting list and phone number is required, the Artifact team wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.
The application is available for both iOS and Android users.
The new version of the application allows users to connect their contacts and view articles that are popular in their network.
“By linking your contacts, you’ll see articles with a special badge when they’ve been read by at least some of your contacts,” the team said.
In addition, the company has added another tool to help users visualize reading history.
After reading 10 articles, users can see statistics about what they read most from their profile.
Users will see a thumbs down icon on every article page so they can tell the company “why you don’t like an article or a publisher and take action to see fewer likes or fewer articles from that publisher”.
Users can also add a phone number from their “Profile”, which stores their preferences and history.
“Adding a phone number allows you to log in across devices or regain access when you get a new phone,” the team explains.
The app’s waiting list was opened to the public last month.
