Instagram has rolled out a set of enhancements to its direct messaging feature, which included threaded conversations and enhanced emoji’s.
Instagram Direct has so far garnered 85 million monthly users since its 2013 launch, but the service was never equivalent with direct messaging offered by competitors like Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter
Today, Instagram is introducing the much required threaded conversations. That means you don’t have to create a new conversation with someone every time you want to DM them a new photo.
Now you can just send in a photo the way you were sending a text message and keep the conversation going. In addition, Direct now has a quick camera feature for replying with a selfie, and there is a new ability for sending gigantic emojis.
According to the Instagram, nearly 40% of comments include an @-mention. Users can now share content directly with others by tapping on the new arrow that appears next to the like and comment buttons. This will allow you to share the post as a DM.
