We pay much attention to updates in Instagram, but we often overlook some buns that appear in the director. We decided to correct and sip the full review on Instagram Direct.

Actually this title is here, because we found this request in Wordstat, well, if the survey is complete, then let's really in order. Direct in Instagram can be found in the right upper corner in the tape of publications.

To get into the section of private messages in Instagram, you need to click on the airplane in the upper right corner, as shown in the screenshot. If you already have someone written, then instead of the airplane there will be a figure.
Direct to Instagram on Android
There is nothing very different, the difference was in the icons before, but now it is not.
Direct without messages initially looks like this.
Then all your dialogues will appear on this site.
In the browser version there is no directive, but if there are Stories there, then it is quite logical to wait for the appearance of the directive there. Also, we will separately talk about how to use the directive in Instagram from a PC or laptop.
Instagram Direct Features
✅ You can write messages to anyone, but if the user is not subscribed to you, you will have to wait for permission to correspond. By the way, if you are a business in Instagram, closely monitor requests, because notifications about them do not come.
Requests are displayed over the remaining messages.
✅ You can correspond with one user or group with up to 15 people in the directory.
✅ In addition to plain text, you can send photos and videos from your phone, publish from the tape and Stories, directories, hashtags and places.
✅ The photos and videos downloaded from the phone are sent in the form of disappearing messages, when the user views your message, it will disappear from the correspondence.
✅ You can cancel sending a message even if it has already been viewed.
✅ Direct is one of the few places in Instagram where links are clickable. Remember this when you set up our AutoDirect feature.
✅ Direct answers and reactions to your history come, and also if you mention someone in history, then the user will receive a notification about this in the directive.
✅ Received in the direct publication, you can be lazy, and still do a chain of photo-answers or video-answers, when the previous answer is displayed in the upper right corner.
The photo-answers have all the functionality that is available when you publish Stories, but without publishing in the general stream.
