With messaging becoming a bigger part of the Instagram experience, the Meta-owned app has recently publicized a range of messaging upgrades, including quick sharing, music previews, new chat themes & more.
First off, Instagram’s adding a new ‘reply while you browse’ option that enables users to reply to a message in-stream, without having to tap through to their DM inbox.
Instagram chat upgrades:
You can see this new option in the first frame, with an incoming DM appearing in a new drop-down panel. And the operator is then able to reply, without having to tap through to their Direct inbox.
Instagram’s also making the addition of a new quick send option, that will highlight your nearby friends when you tap and hold the share button on a post. Yet again making it cooler to send a DM without troublesome your browsing experience.
And as per the previous frame, Instagram’s also adding new online pointers in your DM panel.
Whereat the top of your inbox, you are able to see who’s free to chat at that moment, helping you find unforeseen chances to attach with friends.”
