Is it just me, or are companies on a spree to introduce a change in them today? First of all, we have seen how Google has a new logo, while the Nest Thermostat is revealed in its 3rd generation. Instagram does not want to lose out on change apparently, with improvements being made to Instagram Direct. Instagram Direct was first launched in 2013, where it functioned as a method to share moments with one person or a smaller group, and with over 85 million users each month that take advantage of Instagram Direct, improvements are certainly part of the deal, where it includes threaded messages and the ability to send content from your feed as a Direct message.
Threaded messages are a whole lot easier to “hold a conversation” with someone else, as well as to keep track of where it is going. After all, that is only natural, so it is nice to see Instagram Direct take this approach, letting your moments flow along naturally.
As for privacy, it will work in the exact same way as it always has on Instagram, which means that both photos and videos which have been sent using Direct will remain visible only to those who previously were able to see them, so you should have some peace of mind here. Instagram for iOS version 7.5 can be picked up from the Apple App Store, while Instagram for Android version 7.5 is available today on Google Play. [Press Release]
