Users Can Now Send Silent Messages on Instagram With New Messaging Features

Silent Messages on Instagram

Instagram is introducing a slew of new features aimed at improving users’ chatting experiences. The photo and video sharing site now allows users to reply to messages while surfing, as well as send messages silently. Instagram has now partnered with music streaming services to allow users to send 30-second long song previews to their friends in chat. You can also tap and hold the share button to quickly reshare posts with others. Instagram’s most recent update places connections who are available online at the top of the inbox. There are also new customization choices, as well as polling possibilities in group conversations.

In a blog post published on Thursday, Meta announced the arrival of new messaging options to Instagram. Instagram users may now reply to messages without having to go to the inbox while scrolling through their feeds, according to a recent upgrade. It’s also introducing a new quick send feature, which allows users to instantly reshare a post with friends by simply tapping the share button long enough. In addition, Instagram has included new online indications to the DM (direct message) panel, which show which of your connections are online right now.

Instagram is adding new features to customise messaging threads as well. These include new chat themes, silent messages, and polls within group chats. The social media platform has joined hands with Apple Music and Amazon Music to allow users to share 30-second long song previews in chats. The receiver can listen to the audio directly from the chat window. This feature will soon get support for Spotify, Meta said.

The silent texts feature, which was first introduced on Facebook Messenger, is now available on Instagram as well. You will be able to send a message without informing the other recipients. In addition, there is a new ‘lo-fi’ chat theme. Instagram has also included the ability to generate polls directly in group chats.

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

Instagram’s new features are part of the company’s continuous attempts to improve user communication on the site. In December of last year, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri highlighted the company’s basic aims for 2022, including a focus on message and a doubling down on restrictions to promote transparency.
