(CNN) - Instagram is rolling out a new mute feature that will allow users to quiet their followers without having to cut ties completely.

The mute button will let users block out posts from the people they follow but avoid the awkwardness of unfollowing kind of like Facebook.

This has been high on Instagram’s wish lists for a while to control what you see on your feed without ending a friendship.

The feature will roll out as a temporary test in the next couple of weeks.

Instagram's parent company Facebook has had a successful mute option for a while, as well as a snooze feature that mutes posts for 30 days.
