Instagram Gets New Messaging Features: Users Can Now Send Silent Messages

Instagram comes with several new features to enhance the users’ messaging experience. The photo and video sharing platform has added the ability to reply to messages while browsing, and has introduced the ability to send a message silently. Instagram has also integrated with music streaming platforms to allow users to share 30-second song previews in the chat. In addition, you can quickly share posts to friends by pressing and holding the share button. With the latest update, Instagram will show contacts that are available online at the top of the inbox. There are also new features for customizations as well as options for conducting polls in group chats.

On Thursday, Meta announced the addition of the new messaging features on Instagram via a blog posts. With the latest update, Instagram users can reply to messages without navigating to the inbox as they browse through the feeds. It also adds a new instant messaging option that allows users to quickly share a post to friends with just a long press of the share button. In addition, Instagram has added new online indicators to the DM (Instant Messaging) panel to show which of your contacts are currently online.

Instagram adds new features to customize message threads as well. These include new chat topics, silent messages and group chat votes. The social media platform has teamed up with Apple Music and Amazon Music to let users share 30-second previews of chats in chats. The recipient can listen to the audio directly from the chat window. This feature will soon be supported by Spotify, Meta said.

The silent messaging functionality, recently announced on Facebook Messenger, is also available now on Instagram. This allows you to send a message without notifying other recipients. In addition, there is a new “lo-fi” chat theme as well. In addition, Instagram has added support for creating polls directly in group chats.

Instagram is currently rolling out most of the new features in “selected countries”, but they are expected to reach a global audience later.

The new developments are part of Instagram’s ongoing efforts to improve user communication on the platform. In December last year, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri announced that the company will focus on messaging and will double controls to improve transparency while listing the company’s overall goals for 2022.
