SAN FRANCISCO — Instagram has created several new features to give people more ways to support businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Businesses and people around the world are facing a new reality," Instagram said.

The features allow users to discover business gift cards, food order options and fundraisers within the mobile app.

Instagram broke down the new revenue-generating features for businesses in an announcement earlier this month.

"With these features, businesses can continue to serve their communities and garner support during this challenging time," Instagram said.
