After two years, Instagram has updated its messaging service called Instagram Direct. Now, if you want to share photos or videos to one user or to an up to 15 users group, you can now directly send them in an existing conversation or to send Instagram content as a Direct message.
In order to not start new conversations every time, you can search for existing discussions where you can send photos and videos, even naming these discussions to find them quicker. At the same time, with the help of a curved arrow, you will open a direct messaging window where you can sent content posted by another users and your friends will see the original post.
The update is already available for Android and iOS.
