Direct Messaging got its first announcement back in August which they have now introduced for all the users on its platform.
What did Instagram have to say on this?
“When viewing a photo message from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and capture a reply. Your reply includes a sticker of what you’re replying to. Move and resize it, and add your own twist to stickers, text and drawings. You can remix photos back and forth for a fun visual of your conversation.”
The New Additions
Instagram has added other tools to their Direct Message feature – Remix and Replay Controls. Instagram stated “Additionally, you can now also control replays. Choose “One View” for messages you want your friends to only see once. For everything else, choose “Allow Replay” so your friends have more time to view your messages. Photos and videos sent with “Allow Replay” loop automatically and your friends can tap and hold to pause.”
More features to learn about
Instagram is always following in the footsteps of Snapchat regarding all their latest messaging features. Like in last November, Instagram came up with disappearing DMs containing their own dedicated inbox but then they merged them into their regular box this year. Moreover, Instagram also brought the ability to share Stories via DM while they also added the feature of links to DMs.
