The Instagram direct messages (DMs) have been updated with a new Messenger interface, and the news was released today. Since we introduced messaging to Instagram, it has seen significant development. As we expand, we’ve been discussing how our messaging can keep up. More than a hundred billion communications are sent daily just within the Facebook family of apps.
Nowadays, people use video calls to hang out with pals, send memes and GIFs to express what they’re thinking (but can’t always say), and share humorous images and voice notes to keep in touch.
More and more conversations are taking place outside of public view. In fact, more than a billion individuals around the world regularly use Messenger to chat with loved ones and express themselves. To ensure you have the greatest messaging experience possible, regardless of which app you use, we’re integrating Messenger and Instagram to bring some of the best Messenger features to Instagram. Instagram users have the option of upgrading to the latest version right away.
Our survey found that despite the importance of messaging apps for keeping in touch with loved ones, one in three users admitted to having trouble locating a specific discussion. By integrating these two services, users will no longer have to choose between the two while trying to contact friends and family.
In addition, we’re introducing over ten brand-new features to help you maintain meaningful relationships with your closest companions. Selfie stickers are a novel way to respond to discussions, and they combine elements of Boomerang, emojis, and selfies. During a video call with pals, you can all view the latest viral videos on IGTV at the same time with the new feature called Watch Together. In addition, we’ve included a new “vanish” setting that makes viewed messages vanish immediately.
Instagram calls and messages are stored within the app so you always have access to them. The most notable difference is that those who have the Messenger app can now contact you on Instagram, and vice versa, without either of you having to switch to a different messaging service. You can choose to accept calls and messages in particular chats, on specific message requests, or nowhere at all.

We’re also including some of Messenger’s more well-known features, such as the ability to forward messages and reply to specific ones, as well as the ability to change the chat’s color scheme and theme. More than 10 million Messenger users each day pick their own thread colors and give themselves unique nicknames. You can add more feeling and visual flair to your reactions and messages with unique emoji reactions, and soon, message effects.
More and more exciting approaches to social interaction will emerge in the future. Some functions, like personalized emoji reactions and selfie stickers, will debut on Instagram before making their way to Messenger.
