Instagram Testing New Messenger App for Direct Messaging

    The Instagram app which is the best picture editor, sharpener and best tool for users now comes with a new development to create a stand-alone app for a direct message just like the popular Facebook messenger application.

    Instagram Messenger App

    Now, Instagram has videos and gifs (Boomerang). It has its own set of superstars and an algorithmic feed that helps those superstars dominate users’ feeds, including mine. And it has a direct messaging system.

    The new feature Instagram are testing is only available in Uruguay, Chile, Turkey, Italy, Portugal, and Israel.

    Instagram Said:
    We want Instagram to be a place for all of your moments, and private sharing with close friends is a big part of that. To make it easier and more fun for people to connect in this way, we are beginning to test Direct – a camera-first app that connects seamlessly back to Instagram.

    The Instagram application allows users to create, share stories, get access to exclusive filters, Boomerang and other creative tools on Instagram. All your Instagram friends will not be lost as they will be automatically added,

    This looks like a competition with snapchat, a source indicated that the launch of Instagram Stories had resulted in lower usage of Snapchat Stories. However, snapchat later partner with TripAdvisor, OpenTable, Uber, And Others social platforms but the launch of the new Instagram Direct messager app which gives users more private and intimate one-to-one conversations could still have the same effect on Snapchat’s direct messaging app.

    What they are yet to inform us is if the app will launch globally next year being 2018 or we will still have to wait till Instagram has worked out the bugs and given feedback.
