Remix Photos From Friends in Direct Messenger

November 28, 2017

Starting today, you can remix your friends’ photos – then send them back for fun conversations.

When viewing a photo message from a friend, tap the camera icon at the bottom and capture a reply. Your reply includes a sticker of what you’re replying to. Move and resize it, and add your own twist with stickers, text and drawings. You can remix photos back and forth for a fun visual of your conversation.

Additionally, you can now also control replays. Choose “One View” for messages you want your friends to only see once. For everything else, choose “Allow Replay” so your friends have more time to view your messages. Photos and videos sent with “Allow Replay” loop automatically and your friends can tap and hold to pause.

These updates are available as part of Instagram version 24 for iOS and version 24 on Android.
