If you’re an Instagram user, you must already be familar with the ” Direct ” message feature which allows you to send pictures/videos personally to anyone you’re following but as of now that’s changed as you Instagram Direct lets you do much more than just send pictures or videos.
Instagram’s new update allows you to send hashtag pages, profiles, messages, a heart etc and create groups too with upto 15 people. Although Direct messaging on Instagram lacks privacy…it still is a pretty useful feature as you can finally have a proper conversation privately on Instagram. This should put Instagram Chat out business. One third of Instagram’s population use Direct Messaging, hence the developers have decided to put more focus on improving Instagram Direct and you shall see more features added to Instagram direct in the near future.
Facebook already owns WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, the world’s largest Instant Messaging app. (Check out our list of Top 5 Instant Messaging Apps) Instagram is probably going to become the third with this new feature. Although Instagram Direct messaging has a few limitations such as not being able to save (download) photos from conversations but that shouldn’t stop you as you can just take a screen shot easily.
So leave your comments behind on what you think about this move and the pros/cons about it?
