Well, well, well, Instagram is releasing yet another new feature. Yes, more! It seems like every week we get something new nowadays. Today, Instagram announced it’s going to be introducing seven (yes, 7!) new messaging features.
One of Instagram’s biggest goals in the past year is to make messaging your friends “more seamless and fun” and the newest messaging features are apparently going to help us do just that!

What are the new Instagram messaging features?

  • Reply while you browse: Instead of being sent back to your inbox when you receive a message while you’re browsing your feed, you can now reply while scrolling. Easy and convenient.
  • Quickly share to friends: By tapping and holding the share button, you can quickly reshare posts to your friends.
  • See who’s online: Similar to Facebook, you’ll now be able to see who is currently online when you’re on Instagram.*
*And if you’re anything like me, a feature you will immediately try to find a way to remove. 😆
There are also new ways to customize your messages like:
  • Send some music: You’ll be able to share a 30-second preview of a song with friends quickly.
  • Send messages quietly: If you’re looking to send a message to a friend without notifying them, add @silent to your message.
  • Lo-Fi chats: There is now a lo-fi chat theme to make your conversations more personal.
  • Create polls: You can now create polls with your friends within messaging! So those nights when none of you can decide where you want to go to dinner? Send a poll over in the group chat.
While these features aren’t rolled out everywhere just yet, they are expanding to more and more countries soon. So don’t be nervous if you don’t have it just yet. It’ll be coming soon!
