At the moment, it is in the testing stage, which means, it is not a feature that has been made permanent. In fact, some users noticed this feature on their app around three weeks ago while others have only started to notice it now.
This does not come as a surprise as Instagram tends to test out a new feature in stages to understand how different brackets of the audience interact with it.
