Instagram has rolled out a lot of new features over the past few months, many of which have raised questions about how they work. Quiet mode is a relatively new feature released by Instagram to "help reduce the number of notifications a user receives while helping to overcome smartphone addiction." So if you see a small crescent moon icon under the profile name in the direct inbox, it means that the user has turned on quiet mode. Read the rest of this article to learn more about Instagram's moon mode and find out how to turn it on.
You might have faced this message when sending DM to someone on Instagram:
Wasn't Notified About This Message Because They're In Quiet Mode.
This means that the notification of your message will not be sent to the person, because the Instagram quiet mode is activated.
Quiet mode is an account setting in the Instagram app that any user can use to silence app notifications. As mentioned earlier, Instagram sees this as an opportunity not only to improve user account settings, but also to help fight smartphone addiction, which is more practical than many realize.
Using this feature, Instagramers can silence notifications (including messages) so that no one is disturbed when they are busy or taking a break. Smartphone addiction is a reality for many Instagram users, and the Quiet Mode setting aims to help people who may be struggling with such an addiction.

Quiet Mode is available in almost all countries across the world. If it is not available in your country you can be sure that it will be soon.
