Instagram Introduces Private Messaging Service

Posted By: Poketors - December 14, 2013
Most of the smartphone users use the popular photo-sharing app Instagram. Recently it launched a messaging service that will enable its users to send photos and video clips directly to family and friends.

Instagram Direct, the newly revealed mobile messaging app for both Android and iOS will boost up Instagram’s profile with the larger friend circles and a habit of using their Smartphones for sending messages. This Facebook-owned company’s new service will enable users to send their photos or videos to up to 15 people at one time as well as have real-time text chats effectively.

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said in a blog post, “There are … moments in our lives that we want to share, but that will be the most relevant only to a smaller group of people—an inside joke between friends captured on the go, a special family moment or even just one more photo of your new puppy. Instagram Direct helps you share these moments. From how you capture photos and videos to the way you start conversations through likes and comments, we built Instagram Direct to feel natural to the Instagram experience you already know.”

If you have installed instagram already then an icon would be there on right hand corner. Even if you are installing from App Store or via Google Play, DIRECT button will be on the top right corner of the user’s home feed. A tap of the icon opens the user’s inbox where the photos and videos friends have sent are stored. See the video to learn how to use Instagram Direct.
