Instagram is testing a separate messaging app to send direct message
If you are sending the messages to your friends on the regular bases on Instagram then a good news is here for you, Instagram is about to launch a separate messaging app called “Direct” which allow users to send messages directly to other users.
The app will be similar to Snapchat messaging app by which you can share photos and videos directly with your friends. The motive of this separate app is to discard the traditional messaging feature from the Instagram app. After installing the Direct app the inbox feature will vanish from the Instagram app and can be accessed through the only Direct app.
“If we want to serve the feature at its best version then we have to launch a separate app for that particular feature,” said, CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
For now, the app is available in the six countries Isreal, Chile, Itlay, Portugal, Uruguay, and Turkey. Soon app will roll out in more countries.
