7 New Features in Instagram DMs, Exchanging Messages is More Fun!

Instagram brings 7 new features that you can find in the DM (Direct Message) menu. This way, the activity of exchanging messages with your friends is even more fun.

As we both know, on Instagram there is a menu called DM which serves to send messages to fellow Instagram users.

Unfortunately, the menu does not have qualified features so that the appearance of the DM is quite ordinary and does not attract attention. Instagram users have also complained to Adam Mosseri.

Hearing these complaints, Mosseri immediately moved quickly by presenting a series of new features that would be embedded in the Direct Message menu.

“Messaging is one of the main ways people connect online today. Instagram needs to embrace the fact that messaging is the primary form of communication,” Mosseri said.

No half-hearted, Mosseri immediately brought 7 features at once which have become available in the DM menu. What are you? Curious? Here SPIN provides a list quoted from TechCrunch.
