The company said it has started testing a new feature that automatically hides comments similar to others that have been reported.
One can tap 'View Hidden Comments' to see the comments.
"Comments that violate our Community Guidelines will continue to be removed," said Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram.
"We're expanding our nudge warnings to include an additional warning when people repeatedly attempt to post comments that might be offensive", he added.
Instagram also announced 'Stories Map', a private map and calendar of the stories people shared in the last three years.
"You can look back and remember all your favourite moments. You'll be able to share, download, and save these stories to your highlights".
Mosseri said that over the coming months, Instagram users will see some major changes, like tabs for Reels and shopping, and some big improvements to messaging.
"We'll look to accelerate ways for creators to make a living and for small businesses to sell their products".
He said the company will stay focused on keeping people safe and building new features that fight bullying, improve equity, address fairness, and help people feel supported.
