Instagram rolls out new Direct feature

Instagram is currently rolling out a new feature for its Direct platform: a Snapchat-like disappearing image and video messaging tool designed to ‘turn any conversation into a visual conversation’.

Instagram unveiled the new feature in a post on the company’s blog, and suggest it can be used to keep friends up-to-date with your latest activities.

Users can access the feature by tapping on the new blue camera icon found at the bottom of the Direct menu to take a disappearing image or video and then tapping the arrow to send it to friends or groups.

Disappearing images and videos can be replayed once, and the sender will be notified if the content is replayed or a screenshot is taken.
