  • Reply to Instagram messages with pictures and video

The upgrade gives users new options to reply to a message. The latest addition to the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app is meant to make direct message replies a little more visual.

The feature would be rolled out in phases to iOS and Android devices over the coming weeks. Just hit “reply” to open the camera, take a selfie, and send. With the latest update, when you reply to a message with a photo or video, a sticker of the original post will be added. A user can move it around the screen and do basic functionality such as rotating it or resizing it. Addition to that, when user tap on the sticker, message will be converted into split-screen reply and user can doodle also. When the user takes a selfie, it will now include a sticker of which specific photo they're replying to.

Instagram's Direct messaging is getting an upgrade, with the ability to reply to posts with stickers or even split-screen selfies.

Instagram has started rolling out new ways to interact with friends on the photo-sharing social network. The face filter is accessible via a new face button which appears in the lower corner of the camera.
