The popular photo sharing app have added a new feature to the platform which is the ability to send voice messages in the direct message. This is coming after the recent overhaul in User Interface some weeks back which leads me to say that Instagram isn’t done yet but i digress, so back to the voice messages. No, you’re not allow to send prerecorded voice messages only the one recorded in the app. Also, Voice messages have a maximum limit of 1 minute, similar to one on Facebook. In fact, the newly added voice message feature is more or less a carbon copy of the one on Facebook.
Instagram made the announcement via a post on the popular micro-blogging platform – Twitter – stating the feature is also rolling out as we speak and users of the platform should expect to see a microphone icon in both your group and one-on-one chats when next you access the Instagram app. Also, the feature is for both the iOS and Android platform.
Starting today, you can send voice messages in Direct. Talk the way you want to be heard, whether by whispering what you’re up to or shouting a compliment. pic.twitter.com/3rkdQneNXO
